What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer system is it running?
What do you mean by "doesn't seem to drag"?
If you have not already, please review the Adobe document on Creating and Trimming Titles in Premiere Elements.
How far have you gotten into the workings of the Titler where titles are created?
You title your thread Captions....what do you want, static, rolling, or crawling text that runs across the bottom or top of your Timeline video?
Typically, your video goes on Video 1 and the title created goes on Video 2 directly above.
Answers will be in the details. So, please more information to help us help you.
