    Elements Premier 13 - Text not typing on title slides

      I cannot fathom why I cannot type text on a movie title screen, I can get into the monitor screen and delete text, but other than the spacebar none of the characters I type appear.

          What computer operating system?

           

          Are you a new user to Premiere Elements and Premiere Elements 13/13.1 in particular? Since I do not know if you are or not, please excuse the introductory questions.

           

          1. Are you in the opened Titler/Text Section of the program when you use the Type Tool? Did you get there using Text Menu/New Text/Default Text? Or, did you get there via Titles & Text Tab/General and Default Text? Have you done successful titles in the Titler before but just not th

           

          Please review the following Adobe document on creating titles

          https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-elements/using/creating-trimming-titles.html

          and, if necessary, I will offer some how to with screenshots for further details.

          Also, look at the Adobe TV video tutorial on titles

          Adding titles | Learn Premiere Elements | Adobe TV

           

          If you are an experienced video editor with the program, then delete the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file and, if necessary, the 13.0 Folder in which it exists. I will give you the path for doing that once I know what computer operating system you are using.

           

          Thank you.

            Thanks for the reply, I'm using an iMac operating Yosemite 10.10.3

             

            I'm simply dragging and dropping a title slide to the start of a movie and then clicking on the text box which appears, the characters can be deleted and spaced inserted but when typing characters nothing appears, it should be very simple and I can't understand why some keyboard instructions (space, delete) work but characters don't.

             

            I'll review your suggestions, thanks.

              We will be watching for your results from the prior suggestions.

               

              If none of them change the situation, please delete the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs. For Mac, I believe the path to it is

              Users\Owner\Libraries\Application Support\Adobe\Premiere Elements\13.0

               

              Thanks.
