What happens if you click and just start typing, without applying a style?
Thank you for the idea Jim.
Now, for no reason at all, I tried your suggestion of typing first before selecting a style and it stays at 100% aspect, even if I select a style later. However, if I ever pick a style, it sticks with its own aspect. I tried a bunch of other styles I usually don't use and they force their aspect (not just 145%) on every other text line in the sample titles I made, but at least I can start with 100% and work with that.
But since 100% is what I want to use, I guess there is a new question. How can I save my title to guarantee it will have a 100% aspect ratio?

Titles are saved automatically just by creating them. They are a part of the project file.
I am back to work with Premiere CS4 again and I think the problem is that
1) most of my favorite titles have non-100% aspect ratios
2) that non-100% aspect stays when clicking on another style
3) I click on them before typing
So just changing the workfly by saving new custom styles for the job has helped.
Thank you Jim for the troubleshooting and Joe for being able to dig deeper into Premiere's style features. I used to think those were just for DVD titles!
To anyone else reading the thread I decided to mark Jim's first answer as the correct one for the thread to award the points since it made me find the right workflow. It is my 12:12pm response that shows that workflow. I'd note this earlier but "edit" didn't appear on my original post.
