Premiere Elements 10: Title edit malfunction / editing aggravations

Adobe Premiere Elements 10. I am noticing another quirky text / title related thing in this new version 10. Perhaps the same condition may have existed in Version 9, but it has been several months since I used the software and I can't remember for sure. What I am seeing is this: Let's say I add a text title to a video clip, render the work area, and, later, bring that same clip and text up for editing. Suppose I simply want to move the title somewhere else on the frame. I make the move, render the work area, then play the video play through. The title has not changed position. Its like I never made the change. Now, if I perform the same steps again, only this time, after moving the title, I also delete and replace one of the title's text characters. I then render and replay the clip. Now the title has assumed the correct position on the frame.

Seems to me the programmers have not allowed for the simple repostioning of a text title to constitute a real change and therefore are not writing that change out to disk.

One more thing, if I may. I'm in the middle of editing a new video project. After being a Avid / Pinnancle user for several years, I must say working around in the Elements interface is a real challenge at times. Moving clips around in the Timeline can be seriously aggravating. For example, when relocating a clip, your software (unlike the Avid product) does not free up the appropriate space to hold the moved clip and it does not "snap to" the clip adjoining the new clip location. Often times, a gap is left between the clips that requires a cleanup. Also, your software is prone to spliting a clip if any over laping occurs. When you move and drop a clip on top of another, the software should slide all the clips to the right, leaving the exact amount of space needed to fit the moving clip. There should never be any fragmenting of a clip due to a relocation.
