    How to create a colored background (color board) to apply text?

    hmjackson3614 Level 1

      I have the Premier Elements 9 software.  How can I add a colored clip to the timeline to apply text?  In Cyberlink PowerDirector 9 video editing software it is called a "Color Board" and are available in a submenu under the main Edit menu.  There are about 31 RGB Color Boards ranging from 0,0,0 to 255,255,255 that come standard with the software.  These Color Boards are just solid colors that can be dragged to timeline the same as a photo image, video, etc.  I'm purposely not using the term "Background" because that is another choice in PD 9.  In that software a background is more like an image such as parchment paper, or sandpaper or an image upon which text can be added as well as other effects.

       

      I have not been able to find a "Color Board" type option in PE 9 or discussed in the Help menu?  Is this even an option in PE 9?  If so, how to I access it.
