          HI Derek,

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

             

            By the nature of your question, I am suspecting that this is a Photoshop Elements Editor question involving

            Edit Menu/Preferences/Display & Cursors where you can set for Painting and Other Cursors for Standard or Precise

            and other.

             

            There are no such options in Premiere Elements. Could you be using a pen and tablet instead of mouse for Premiere

            Elements?

             

            Lots of questions, and the answers are in the details which you have yet to presented.

             

            Looking forward to your reply to Sandeep Singh's and my questions.

             

            Thank you.

              Hello Sandeep.  I am new to premier13 previously I have used pinnacle 15 or iMovie 10.  In these programs when I click on a clip in the time line the curser moves automatically to the chosen clip.   At the moment in premier I have to physically move the curser to the clip I want to work on.  I am using the expert mode. I realise that in the simple mode the curser jumps to the clip ..  Can't understand why it does not do so in the expert mode.  Hope you can help.   Derek Ellison

                From your description, it would appear that, when you refer to "cursor", you are referring to the Timeline Indicator (Expert workspace). Is that correct?

                 

                Expert workspace - Click on the Work Area Bar in the spot directly above the clip to command the Timeline Indicator to that spot.

                If the clip is not selected, you will still have to click on it to select it.

                I am not seeing any way to change that behavior in the Expert workspace.

                  Dear A.T. Romano.    That was a great help - selecting the clip and clicking above brought the timeline indicator to where I wanted it to be .   Thank you.  By the way could you advise me on how to see the length in seconds of each individual clip

                    The following should work with or without the clip actually being highlighted/selected....

                     

                    Move the mouse cursor over the title of the clip.....a pop up should appear displaying

                    File Title

                    Start

                    End

                    Duration

                      Thanks again you have been very helpful.  Slight problem every clip comes up with the same duration 11.50.18  Is there a reason for this? Best wishes Derek Ellison

                        Is it possible that all your clips could be the same duration? Please cross check what you are seeing in the Timeline versus what the file's Project Assets thumbnail gives for duration.

                         

                        Please review the following and then me know if you can see a difference between the two of us in this Timeline display.

                         

                        First clip duration = 00;00;25;00 which represents 25 seconds.

                         

                        durationproof2.jpg

                         

                        Second clip duration = 00;00;05;00 which represents 5 seconds.

                          The Project Assets shows the correct length of the clip - while the timeline shows all clips are the same length.   When you play the timeline the clips play for the correct number of seconds i.e. all clips are different lengths.   On the timeline the clips all look different lengths.    Is there a default that I can adjust?     Sorry for being a nuisance but thanks again for your advice Derek

                            When you hold your mouse cursor over the title of a Timeline clip, do you see the pop

                            up as shown in my screenshot with 4 catagories.

                             

                            Name of Clip

                            Start

                            End

                            Duration

                             

                            Are you reading the 4th category named Duration? Please give the readings for each of the 4 categories as shown in the pop up for the first clip on the Timeline.

                             

                            There is no default that you can adjust. What you see is what the program is interpreting for that particular clip in its particular TImeline

                            position. I suspect the core of the problem but let us see.

                             

                            In the Timeline where everything is, you wrote

                            "....every clip comes up with the same duration 11.50.18".

                            Please take the Timeline Indicator and move it to the end of the last item on the Timeline.

                            What is the reading in the Timecode above the Timeline?

                            Timeline reading.JPG

                            I am hoping the we can spot the difference between us in this.

                             

                            Thank you.

                              Received your email and tried your suggestions - these are the results

                               

                              Start       00  00  00  00

                              End        00  11  49  00

                              Duration 00  11  49  00

                               

                              These were the results from the last clip but all clips on the timeline are showing the same results.

                                That is odd. It would appear that the project is looking at your Timeline content as one continuous file rather than

                                a composite of several individual ones, each with its own duration property.

                                 

                                Please confirm what computer operating system your Premiere Elements 13 is running on.

                                I am thinking to have you try deleting the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file (Premiere Elements Editor Setting File) to determine if

                                that will have any impact on your situation.

                                 

                                Since you mentioned iMovie a while back in your thread, I will assume Mac for now...since I am strictly an

                                Elements Windows users, here is my guess as to where the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file is in Mac
