keep title with picture 5 when deleting picture 3
Posted: 11 Apr 2012 03:03 PM
I am using Windows Movie Maker with Windows XP.
Say I have 10 pictures, with a title on picture 5.
If I delete picture 3, then the title that picture 5 had is now on picture 6,
as the pictures “slide” to the left, but the titles don’t move.

Is there a way to delete picture 3 and keep the title that is on picture 5 on picture 5?

I know that I can cut and paste the title back to picture 5, but this is
tedious if you need to do this for many pictures.
Thank you.

Unfortunately titles are relative to the start of your movie and not tied to any specific part on the video track. If you delete a picture, you'll need to realign any titles and/or added sound from that point onward.

However, here's a trick that may save you some work of realigning all the other titles one-by-one. If you select all the affected titles, you can move them as a group. To do this, select the first affected title (say the one on Picture 5), hold down <Shift> and then click the last affected title (say the one on Picture 10). Now drag them as a group to the left. As soon as one is realigned the rest will be too, since the relative spacing is maintained.

Thank you Blaine! The trick of moving the group will indeed be very helpful.
I am deleting 2 pictures from the start of my 30 picture movie (with a dozen titles)
and using your trick will allow me to align the titles in one move.
I will use it right now.
I really appreciate your sharing your expertise.

Indeed, it worked nicely.
Also, I learned from your response that I don't need to
cut and paste an individual title (using menus),
but I can drag one selected title.
Much easier.
