I've come across this problem several times - is it possible to change the dimensions of a project after it has been created? So if I made a project to be 720x576 but then discovered that my video was a smaller dimension after I imported it all, can I tell premiere now to be the smaller dimension? The video size is greyed-out in the obvious place of project/project-settings/general. I don't want to scale my videos up - so far I've had to make a whole new premiere project which is smaller when this happens.

Elizabeth-- once you make a new project with the smaller dimensions, you can import the "old" project into this new project. (From the top menu choose File > Import just as if you were importing any other clip.)
That will bring in all of your edited sequences with the "new" dimensions, so you don't have to start over from scratch.
