    PrE 12 Styles Not Working

    magnum_jim Level 1

      I have premier Elements 12, using a windows 7 pro. My Styles have stopped showing. they were visible under the drop down tag, suddenly they are gone. Any suggestions?

      They are not showing up in either mode.

          Do you get the same results if you start a new project? Do you remember doing any particular maneuvers in the workspace immediately before the problem set in - saving Styles, creating Styles, etc? With the program closed, have you gone to the Styles Folder and deleted it and opened a new project?

          Libraries

          Documents

          Adobe

          Premiere Elements

          12.0

          and in the 12.0 Folder is the Styles Folder tha you delete.

           

          Based on that description

           

          Delete the Premiere Elements 12 Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file

           

          Local Disk C

          Users

          Owner

          AppData

          Roaming

          Premiere Elements

          12.0

          and in the 12.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete. Be sure to be working with Folder Option Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives active so that you can see the complete path. In this instance, not holding out hopes for this, but it is worth a try before the next step which should resolve the problem.

           

          Sign Out of the program in an opened project, Help Menu/Sign Out (the Deactivation step)

          Then uninstall the program via the typical Control Panel/Installed Programs route

          Do a computer run through of the ccleaner (regular cleaning and registry cleaning parts)

          http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

          Reinstall the program with the antivirus and firewalls turned Off.

           

          Please review and the let us know the outcome so that you can consider what next if necessary.

           

          Thank you.

            Hi A.T:

            I did all, including the uninstall. I then run the cleaner, plus

            defraged the disk.I then open the program that I was working on, and the

            style was again not visible. I then tried creating a new program.:-(

            Still there is no styles visible when I try to load a text . There are

            white text only. The styles are not there. Any ideas?

            Thank Jim Inman

              Thanks for the reply.

               

              Please confirm that you have done the following requested troubleshooting

              With the program closed, please go to Libraries/Documents/Premiere Elements/12.0/Styles. In the Styles folder disable the "workingset.prsl" file by changing its name from workingset.prsl to workingset.prslOLD. Then reopen the saved closed project or start a new project.

               

              In the prior post, I suggested a variation on this when I asked you to delete the whole Styles Folder.

               

              Please try let us know the results from renaming the workingset.prsl

               

               

              If that does not resolve the issue, then...

               

              If you have not already, let us check to see if the Styles thumbnails are on the computer hard drive

               

              Local Disk C

              Program Files

              Adobe

              Adobe Premiere Elements 12

              Presets

              Styles

              Common

              Thumbnails

               

              Next

               

              Libraries

              Documents

              Adobe

              Premiere Elements

              12.0

              Styles

              in the Styles Folder do you find a tempworkingset.prsl file and a workingset.prsl file?

               

              Looking forward to your results. Thanks again for the follow ups.

                  Great news. Great job.

                   

                  Was it the renaming of the workingset.prsl file that did the job.

                   

                  Thanks for the follow ups.

                    yes, renaming the file did it.

                    Thanks Again

                        Just for your personal info, that same thing happened to me with

                        elements 11. I was never able to get it fixed.

                         

                        1. I have a couple of question for you, do you work for Adobe?

                        2. If I have a question, can I email you, or should I post it?

                        3. Do you think I can handle the pro version, how different is the pro

                        version. I would only buy the program itself, and not the monthly update.

                        I would appreciate your reply.

                        Again, you were very helpful

                        Thank Jim

                          My reply. Posting questions in the Premiere Elements Forum is preferred since then we all learn in the learning and sharing process. But, I do read and reply to all my private messages here.

                          My reply. There are several new and advanced features in Premiere Pro, but with a good Premiere Elements base, the transition between programs should not be all that difficult. However the deal breaker seems to be purchased product versus subscriptions. As I understand it, Premiere Pro CS6 goes through as CC on the subscription basis only. So far, Premiere Elements has not been "under the CC" and subcription purchase. However, I discovered that, for version 12, Adobe is selling direct only the download and not the boxed packaging. But, its authorized resellers are selling the boxed packaging.

                           

                          Please let us know if you need clarification on any of the above.

                           

                          Thanks.

                            I might try the premier pro. I guess I need to take time.
