Are you able to see the styles and fonts in other applications in Win 8.1? Say, like MSWord? This is only to see if there is any corruption in the fonts.
Premiere Elements Team
In the past, resolution to this issue has come from deletion the workingset.prsl file in the Styles Folder in
Libraries/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Elements/13.0 (in your case). Then open the Styles Folder in the 13.0 Folder
and delete workingset.prsl. (If you want, you can just disable that file by renaming the file workingset.prslOLD.)
Did that work for you?
We will be looking forward to your results.
Hi. It was exactly the right answer. File rename. Start Premiere and everything works. Many thanks.
Thank you for the update. Glad that suggestion worked for you.
If any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
