    Styles not showing - Premier Elements 3

      No preset styles are present when I launch the 'add title' button; they have always been present prior to this.

      I tried repairing Premier Elements and then a full reinstall - still no preset styles showing.

      Can anyone tell me where I can find the styles on the software CD Rom and into which folder I should place the files when I find them?

            Many thanks for these suggestions - unfortunately they didn't work for me. I have PE 3 and my styles folder is within another one called Presets. However I renamed the workingset.prsl file and relaunched PE 3 but it didn't recreate it.

            What puzzles me is that a full reinstall didn't recreate it either; I then copied workingset.prsl from a backup copy which I had into the Presets/Styles folder and that didn't work either!

            It's not a great problem in theory as one should be able to create a custom style; however in practice I have found the custom style doesn't work - for example though I save it with the Arial font, the retrieved style is always the 18th century font!

            I think the problem may be that I installed Photoshop Elements 2 recently; I may have to uninstall that program and then try another reinstall of PE.

            Thanks for your response though.

            Best wishes

            Nick

              Hey nick,
              you should clear your preferences. You have to delete one file i particular . this is alled "workingset.prsl". Dont rename . just delete it.
              Clear all the fiels from following location:
              My documents\Adobe\Premiere Elements

              Let me knwo if this works.

                Nick,
                I'm highjacking this string to answer Kami-Kaze's response to you. I have had the same problem w/PE3 with a posted message in this forum under "Need help w/PE3 start up error which shuts down program". A response from Paul LS did not help so I searched more and found the recommendation of deleting the "workingset.prsl". I tried that and it worked! Thank goodness, I'm back in business.
                I'm going to update my other string to verify this solution.

                Thanks Kami-Kaze.

                  I have the same problem. I was glad to find this thread which looked like it could be very helpful to me. I have been unable, however, to reach the link you had suggested (http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.3bbde933). Perhaps Adobe has closed that page? Does anyone know if the FAQ that originally appeared at that link can be found anywhere else?
