Transcript “Merge Segments” New Behavior in Adobe Premiere v23.5.0

Previously, to merge segments in Adobe Premiere’s Transcript tab, you’d simply click on a text segment and then click the Merge segments button.

Now in v23.5.0, that behavior has changed: the Merge segments button is disabled by default.

To enable the Merge segments button, you have to select the text segments you want to merge first!
