When I create a text title - Text/New Text/Default Text I get EXACTLY ONE SHOT (first time) in the whole project of changing the Style. Any subsequent new text title's style cannot be modified when I click on the style options.

I've got the same exact problem, and I wish someone would answer.

I have the same problem. I need to restart PE after every title and that won't work for me because I have to put subtitles under an entire film.
Copying an existing title doesn't work either because when I then change the words in the second one it automatically changes the words in one I copied.

On the title's changing, try opening Project Assets, Ctrl-C the one you want, then Ctrl-V, then change the name of the new copy.

I've been using PE starting with v1, then v7, now v12 and it's still frought with bugs, including the most famous "sorry, a serious error... sutting down" is still in play. It's inconceivable that Adobe doesn't spend the time cleaning up their product instead of spending all their time "adding features" and changing the look of everything so that you have to relearn every new revision.

I notice that on V12 that you don't hae the feature to streatch the spacing between teh characters or stretch the spacing between lines of characters. Thanks for deleting features Adobe!

I have this problem too. I cannot apply any new style to a title in the Adjustment panel. Surely there is a solution.

I think, I found a solution!

This is what didn't work:
1. chose a title, add text, apply style
2. add a second title and apply the same style

I changed my approach: I set up a "style-less" version of all titles first. When I had this completed I double clicked on the first clip to open up the style panel. There, I single clicked on the style. Afterwards, I single clicked on the next title which was followed by a single click on the style.

When I had applied the style to all my titles this way, I went back and adjusted the position and other format options.

I have this problem too. I didn't find any practical solution.

Do Adobe people, i.e. those who can correct this bug, take a look at this forum?

I have the same problem, I bought the program online from adobe together with photoshop elements 12 for my pc with windows 8.1 installed.
For every style-change I have to close-open the program...

You would think we could choose a font style, then play our clip and decide to change the font style.

Nope.

So for now, saving and restarting the application is the only practical solution to change the font style.

I just tried to solve this and devloped a simple workaround.

1. click any Title in the timeline without moving the timeline cursor position.
2. click the 'adjust' icon in upper right corner
3. click 'style' tab
4. choose any font style

5. click the next Title to change
6. choose any font style
7. goto step 5

It should allow you to change as many Titles, as long as you DONT MOVE the timeline cursor yourself. (Note that by clicking the Titles, the timeline cursor will automatically move to the front of the Title, which is OK.)

I need to delete a text banner with action that stayed behind after I deleted previous frames. Why did the banners stay when the file was deleted?

With the latest update to premiere 12.1 everything is working perfect now with the title-styles. (At least here in the Netherlands)
