On what computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 13 running? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates? If not please do that.
Now to your immediate question....
If you want the saved customized font to reappear for each session after it has been created, you need to "Save Style" and " Set Style As Default" in the Titler's Style section and close out of the Titler before opening a new session.
Have you done that? This has worked for me.
More details to follow if needed.
Looking forward to your results.
I am running Premiere Elements 13 on a Macbook Pro Retina OS X Yosemite, version 10.10.3 ..I checked for updates, but I am all updated for my Premiere Elements 13 program. And I tried your advice to save the font, set it as default, and close everything out then re open it. When I re open it, the font is nowhere to be found in the project.
Thanks for the reply. I have written the following for you to use to double check your title/style Save Style/Set Style As Default workflow.
1. Text Menu/New Text/Default Text
2. I typed some text and applied colors to it. The font was Forte, the size 446.
3. I switched to the Style section of the Titler and right clicked any Style......important to not select, just the right click
4. From the drop down menu that opens, first select Save Style and then select Save Style As Default. In this process the new Style has its own thumbnail with its distinctive look.
5. After you close the session (even close/reopen the program) and then reopen the program and a new project, you will find the Style created in the text that you see when you use Text Menu/New Text/Default Text. The new Style (user creation) will have a distinctive appearance and should be at the top left corner of the Style thumbnails in Styles section
Please follow the same route, and determine if this works for you or whether you get the same results as before with your text creation not holding.
I tried doing all those directions and it still hasn't worked yet . Any other ideas?
Thanks for the follow up. Sorry that the news is not better. But, do not give up.
1. When you are starting the process, are you in the Expert workspace and have hit Text Menu/New Text/Default Text rather than using the Titles & Text Tab /General/Default/Default Text at the bottom of the workspace?
2. Please delete the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file. For Premiere Elements 13 Mac, it is probably found
I am strictly an Elements Windows user, so that route may be different than I recall seeing in the threads here. But, it is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you are after to delete.
3. This is what I would consider in Windows, see if you can do this in Mac....Find the Styles Folder...in Windows - Libraries/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Elements/13.0/ and in the 13.0 is the Styles Folder. In the Styles Folder, find the workingset.prsl and delete it. Then open Premiere Elements 13 and go to Text Menu/New Text/Default Text and create a title and try to Save Style and Save Style As Default Text. This idea will regenerate the Styles and will remove any of the old user created Styles.
Please let us know if any of the above had any affect on your issue.
Thank you so much! That worked.
Thanks for the "That worked.:" Sounded great. Glad for your success. Well done.
Which one of the suggestions in post 6 targeted the issue or was it a composite of all that resolved in the issue?
Whatever the case, we are glad that you are moving forward with your Premiere Elements Mac projects.
