Which version of the program are you using and on what operating system?
Is this spinning the "processing" indicator you see on Windows or Max OSX or is it a unique indicator that you only see in Premiere Elements?
Premiere Elements 14.1.
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
The "spinner" is the typical "processing" indicator that appears in Windows.
Each time I opened the Titles & Text > Motion Titles > Custom panel, it was taking an incredibly long time to load the titles. Thus, I had no choice but to delete the Custom titles I had created. Clearly, there's a glitch in the software.
You may be right.
A number of people have reported Titles/Motion Titles not loading properly into the program in the last month or so. Occasionally it's even happening to me on Windows 10.
The closest thing to a workaround I've found is going to the Text menu at the top of the program's interface and select New Title or Motion Title.
I could not make a custom motion title.
