Summary0000849: Add user defined title templates on the Add Clip menu
DescriptionI'm working on a video with sort of subtitles for explanations. Now the steps I have to take are the following:

* Create a good template
* Save the template as .kdenlivetitle
while (!all_subtitles_entered)
* Click on the Add button
* Select Add Title
* Click on the Open button
* Select the template
* Enter text as desired

Suggested workflow:

* Create a good template
* Add the template to the current project's template list (it will then be listed in the dropdown menu of the Add Clip button
while (!all_subtitles_entered)
* Click the Add Clip button
* Select the template created before
* Enter text

Especially when all_subtitles_entered is false for a long time this would save lots of clicks and time and nerves :)

This is now implemented in svn. To use it:

* Create title clip, put a text block with "%s" in it (will be replaced by real text).
* Save it as .kdenlivetitle file
* Add Template Title (from the add clip menu), select the previously saved template
* Double click in the "Description" filed from the project tree, enter your text, it will automatically be inserted

Wow, very nice! Some points:
* After entering the description the title preview isn't updated. I need to click another clip and then the previously modified one.
* Newlines and other special characters like Unicode characters ;) How do I enter them?
* Templates are not marked in the Project Content widget. A little hint would be useful. Don't have a good idea right now.

* Problem when X/Y axis inverted (right/bottom edge fixed)

I've just taken a look at the source. Looks like inverted x/y axis and unicode insertion wouldn't be that easy currently.

I like your method to simply use the description as replacement for %s, because it is simple and intuitive. However, perhaps it is better to use a simplified TtitleClip widget: All unnecessary toolbars hidden (background color, position and everything), but an additional bar/whatever where text can be entered. That way one would also see how it will look like with the entered text.
