Doing a time stretch on a clip: subsequent clip now has time offset between sound and pictures

I'm using Premiere Elements 11. I realise this is an old version, but I hope someone can still help.

I have a series of clips separated by still-frame titles. I want to keep the duration of the titles the same but speed up the video clips. I presume "time stretch" with a number > 100% is the way to do this.

I find that if I select a clip and do a time stretch (eg 300%) on it, that clip is fine but the next clip now has a huge time offset between the pictures and sound and I can't find a way to undo that time offset.

The first image shows the cursor on the first clip. It is followed by a 5-second title and then the second clip. There is also an overlay title during the first clip.

The second image shows the screen after I have done a 300% time stretch on the first clip. Notice that the second clip now has a huge offset between sound and pictures, marked +1:35:1 and -1:35:1, and the sound starts at the end of the first clip instead of at the end of the title. (Note that the horizontal scale of the timeline has been changed automatically.)


Is there a way of preventing this from happening, or else of resetting the time offset onc it has happened?

Hard to tell what to do to prevent this as this is E11 and behavior changes over the years.

Right click on red text of the audio and move insync?

 

Please next time embed your screenshots.

As of now they are too small for me, cannot enlarge.

Another possibilty is to unlink the audio and video tracks.  Then when using time stretch be sure that only the video part is selected.  With them unlinked, the audio track should not change.
