Default roll template for titles & Text

My question is whether there is a way to reduce the time it takes the text to start rolling, or is this something I must live with?

I am using Adobe Premier Elements 2018 on a PC. I dragged the default roll template to the video track.

I added 90 words of text to the template. When I read the 90 words on paper, it takes 35 seconds.

If I do nothing to the template, it takes up 6 seconds on the timeline. The text rolls so fast that it is not possible to read the message. 

If I drag the right edge of the template to 36 seconds on the timeline, the text rolls at a pace that is comfortable to read.

But there are 10 seconds of black with no text at the start of the video. Viewers will assume something is broken & move on without viewing my video.

I would like to reduce the 10 seconds to 1 second or less. 

I have tried every conbination of settings on the Roll/Crawl Options. None of the changes have any effect. It looks like changes that I make are not implemented because when I go back to the Roll/Crawl Options dialog after hitting OK, the settings that were in place before I made my changes are reinstated.

I do not know if or where there is a setting to control the lead in of a rolling title.  But, without seeing your timeline, there may be two possibilities I can think of.  

 

First, it might work "creatively" to put another basic title or image on the track above the the first 10 seconds of the rolling title that you have stretched.   It might keep the viewer engaged until the rolling title starts.  

Second, and probably better, would be to create the stretched rolling title in a separate, dedicated project and output a video of only the title.  Then use that new dedicated title video as a clip in your primary project where you can trim it as appropriate.
