Still image default duration in the Preferences also applies for titles.
Changing the default duration in a project only effects the newly made titles.
Unfortunatly the exciting titles have to be set to the new duration by hand.

Try this --
select all the titles in the project window
re-set the duration in the window that opens.
That should change all the durations in the titles selected, but it won't change the duration of any titles already in a sequence.
If you have a number of titles in one sequence, you can select all of them and then do the Ctr+-R thing on them in one operation.
Hi Ann & Jerry
Thanks to both of you... you are both right! I wish Adobe could add the changing of the default time for titles under the titles area in the preferences, instead of one knowing that still images changing of default time affects titles too.
I tried ctrl+r on the titles in the project panel to change the duration of all titles at once & it worked like a charm.
I haven't tried ctrl+r on titles in a sequence though... PPro crashed on me - I'll try again later.
Still praises to Adobe for being able to apply one video effect to all clips at once in the sequence - that's a cool time saver!
Thanks once again
Thanks to your question and Jerry.K's answer, I learned about Ctrl-r. I've always just done the Edit>Preferences>General, and then if I needed to tweak things a bit, have given focus to the Info Panel, while I Click-drag the Head, or Tail. As I often have a shorter "main Title," and then longer "text Titles," I set my main Preferences for the text Titles, and just shorten my main Tilte per the readout in Info.
