          If you use the titler, it should tell you there.

           

          I'm not sure, but you may need to be in expert mode.

            Double click the original title on the Timeline to open it in the Titler.

             

            In the Text section of the Titler, you should be the Font and it Size.

            And, in the Text section, the Color Properties should open to the color used for the text.

             

            In the Style section, the Style applied should have a blue frame around its thumbnail.

             

            Please check that out and let us know if that works for you.

             

            Thank you.

            Edit for clarification after original post....I am working in the Expert workspace.

              I did not see Peru Bob's post until after I had posted mine.

               

              The principle should be the same in the Expert and Quick workspaces. Details of opening the TItler from the file will differ.

               

              Also, in the Styles section, the Style of the original may not alway be highlighted with the blue frame. That perk was inconsistent for me.

               

              If you cannot identify the Style, please post a screenshot of your text, and I will try to help you identify it.

               

              The font and its size and color should be straight forward to find.

               

              More later.

               

              Thanks.

                Screenshot (3).pngI can not extract the correct information from the tiler, whats high lighted when i open it doesnt create the same text when i copy. 

                From the colour tab ive got,  bevel the 1st box is colors 255, 251, 214 and the second box 200, 165, 0

                  I think I am zeroing in on this. What did you get as the read for Font and its Size in the Text section of the Titler when you opened the title in the Titler by double clicking the title file in the Timeline?

                   

                  Can you determine that or is there a problem there?

                   

                  Thanks.

                      Great.

                       

                      Text Section

                       

                      Font Minion Pro, Size 200

                       

                      Style Section

                       

                      Minion Pro Regular 64

                       

                      Text Section

                       

                      Make set Font Minion Pro, Size 200

                       

                      You can save that Style in Styles and make it the Default if you want.

                       

                      Please try it to confirm it works for you.

                       

                      Just before you posted the Font and Size, I zeroed in on the Minion Pro choice. The T's were just not presenting correctly with other choices.

                       

                      Thanks.

                        A big thank you, you have really helped me out and saved me from pulling my hair out.

                         

                        All my text will be the same now.

                          Wonderful news. Thanks for the follow up.

                           

                          Just a side note (just in case note)....if you move from version 11 to 12, be aware that there is a glitch in Tiltler/Styles...in the version 12, Expert workspace, you will probably run into not being able to change a Style once it is applied. The answer is to toggle to the Quick workspace which is unaffected by this glitch.

                           

                          Continued success.

                            I see style issue is fixed in PRE12.1.

                            I have updated PRE 12 from Help>Updates

                              We are glad that the Premiere Elements 12.1 Update resolved your Text Styles issue.

                               

                              I am not sure if you are aware that this  12.1 related information was available back around March 7, 2014. You may have

                              missed the reports on that.
