          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

           

          Versions 11 and 12 workspaces are markedly different than versions earlier than 11, and I would prefer to

          give you version specific information to expedite matters for you.

           

          Thanks.

            Im using 12 and i have a pc with windows 7. As I mentioned in the other question I am editing music videos with sports highlights and I use text from time to time but when I us text in more than one place in a clip (upper left of screen and lower right for example) i have to reset the size type and color of the text each time i move the cursor with the mouse to begin and new portion of text. I remember this being a small issue with the previous version but it would allow me to save and lable a style size and color that i created and use it each project just by selecting it. Im not very technically advanced and everything i have learned with premiere is self taught by trial and error or youtube. I wish there was a class i could take in prmeiere elements...lol

              In Premiere Elements 12 Expert workspace, go to Text/New Text/Default Text.

               

              In the Titler create your Text with Style.

               

              In The Text Section of the Titler that opened

               

              My selection was

              Font: Century Schoolbook

              Font Size: 305

              Italic

              and in Color Properties I applied colors.

              Switch from the Text to the Style section of the Titler.

               

              Just right click any of the Adobe created Styles thumbnails. (Do not click it to apply the Style).

              As I said, just right click the thumbnail. Select Save Style.In the dialog that opens, give it a name

              or leave the name as it (the name in the dialog will reflect the Text/Style that you want to save

              and not the Style thumbnail that you are borrowing for the saving.

              Note your Text Style thumbnail and its characteristic display with the Adobe created Styles.

               

              The next time you want to create text your created Text Styles, then just apply that

              to what you are typing.

               

              Please give this a try and let me know if it works for you. I can fine tune the description

              if necessary.

               

              Thanks.

              You can also make this your default text if you want. See right clicking of your saved created

              Text Style and Set Style As Default.

                Thats was perfect, thank you very much. Youve made my project(s) much easier with these two fixes.
