What version of Premiere Pro are you working with? Is this Premiere Elements?
To quickly make independent copies of the titles click on a title in the timeline while holding the option (Alt) key and drag to a new location. This will create a new title copy that can be edited independently (at least in Premiere Pro, not sure about elements).
Yes am working with Premiere Elements. Will try it, thank you.....
No luck unfortunately - can't seem to make it work. Would you, or anyone expert and honest that you know, give me a (paid-for) tutorial please? to get me started putting subtitles on so I know exactly what I'm doing? If you have a remote viewer perhaps you could show me on my screen? I'm struggling a bit, have tried for best part of 2 whole days!!
Sorry, I'm not familiar with Premiere Elements. Maybe someone else is - see if someone else replies.

Sounds like you need to change the opacity of the background image of the title that you're using? I'm no expert, and I'm only here killing time waiting for an answer to my problem. But it sounds like there is a background image to me. You should be able to click on the black part you're talking about in the preview window which will allow you to edit the background, then scroll down to the opacity in the "adjust" window. Like this...

For tutorials, none are better than Up and Running With Premier Elements 13 at Lynda.com. There is about a 5 minute section on making titles.
When you make a title an "asset" is created in the "Project Assets" box. You can make a duplicate there to reuse what ever formatting you've done. After you see the duplicate in the Project Assets box, you can slide it to the timeline and change the text.
