Can I Modify Scene Menu?

Participant ,

I have Premere Elements 12 running on an iMac with High Sierra 10.13.

 

I am creating a DVD with menus using the Pan and Zoom template (although I am not doing any Pan and Zoom).  It only allows for 6 entries on a scenes menu.  In my case, 3 per line.  It looks like I could get another line of 3.  Is there a way to modify the scenes menu?  I don't see any other menu templates that allow more than 6 entries on the scenes menu.  I know that a 7th scene will automaticall go to a next scene menu, but if I only had 3 more I wanted it would be nice to avoid the "next" arrow.

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Rick

The only way to fix that is to edit the template in thé Photoshop (not the one from Elements but the original Ps).

So could you please be more specific?  

 

How and where do I find the template?

 

I don't know what you mean by "original Ps" - I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 12.  Is that what you are referring to?

Sorry, but if you have no idea what i am talking about then the answer is no. You are not able to fix the menu.

Workflow is too complex.

I have over 30 years experience in IT with AT&T software and database development and support so I can handle a complex workflow.  I just need to know specifically where it is I need to go to find the source.

Its in the root of Premier Elements under DVD templates (this is windows, mac maybe the same) you will find a (sm) psd file with the same name as your menu. Copy and give it an unique name and open in Ps the original program (not Elements).

https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

In Ps you add (copy/paste) a button. Make sure its exactly the same as in prefixes and the buttons do not overlap as it wont work. You will have to rearrange the buttons to make them fit.

Thanks for the info, but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work for me.  I think a Mac might be different.  I did a search on "DVD templates" and found nothing.  I did a search for psd files and came up with 169 files, but scrolling through the list they were all files I created using Adobe Photoshop Elements, which came with Adobe Premier Elements.  I just went ahead and created 4 scene menus so I could get my project completed.  It just seemed like there was a lot of wasted space I could have used for some other scenes.  But thanks again.

Just to clarify:

PS is Photoshop, a different program than Photoshop Elements.

I don't have it then.  All I have is Adobe Photoshop Elements 12, which came with my purchase of Aobe Premiere Elements.  Thanks for info.
