          I know of this problem in Premiere Elements 13/13.1 and have written about it. It relates to using more than one line of text in a Movie Menu customization. The following is a copy/paste excerpt from my blog write up on this

          Item 19.

           

          0019. Premiere Elements 13 Movie Menu Title Issue: More Than One Line of Text


          A Premiere Elements 13/13.1 user reports that, if he creates a 3 lines of text title for Faux Widescreen theme's main menu in the Movie Maker customization area of the project, those 3 lines of text end up "scrambled" in the reopened project after it had been saved closed.

           

          We have confirmed this report and extended it to include that this issue appears for 13's Movie Menus other than Faux Widescreen. This issue is not seen in Premiere Elements 12/12.1 and earlier versions.

          The only way found so far to get the end product to have the 3 lines of text title for the menus in the end product is to customize the Movie Menu theme in the Movie Menu customization area of the project, do not save close the project at that point, and then do the burn to.


          Many variables have been looked at to explain this behavior. So far no answer for why.

           

          Please review and consider. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

           

          Thank you.

            Thanks so much for your confirmation of the as-yet unsolved problem. Burning before saving/re-opening works for now.

            Even more thanks for pointing me to your Daily Discoveries blog.
