What is Ctrl + Alt + A in Premiere Pro?

Ctrl + Alt + A (Windows) or Cmd + Opt + A (Mac) is the keyboard shortcut for “Add New Caption Track” in Adobe Premiere Pro. Adding a caption track is a way to add text to videos. Caption tracks can be used to add dialog, descriptions, or other text to videos.

To use this shortcut, simply press Ctrl + Alt + A (Windows) or Cmd + Opt + A (Mac). A new caption track will be added to your sequence.

The caption track will be empty at first, but you can add captions to it by clicking the “Add Caption” button in the Caption panel. The Caption panel will appear, and you can type your captions into the text box.

You can also format your captions by selecting the caption text and then clicking the desired formatting buttons in the Caption panel. The formatting buttons include buttons for bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, font size, font color, and text alignment.

Once you have added your captions to the caption track, you can position them by clicking and dragging them on the timeline. You can also resize your captions by clicking and dragging the resize handles on the edges of the caption text.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when using this shortcut:

  • If you already have a caption track in your sequence, the shortcut will add a new caption track.
  • You can also add a caption track by clicking the “Add Track” button in the Timeline panel and then selecting “Caption”.
  • You can also add captions to a clip by right-clicking on the clip and selecting “Add Caption”.
  • You can learn more about adding captions to videos in the Adobe Premiere Pro Help Center.
  • You can export your captions to a file by right-clicking on the caption track and selecting “Export Captions”.
