Under Titles and Text > Classic Titles > General, I extensively used the "Default Text" to add text to my videos. Been doing it that way for some time. I had to reformat my machine due to a corrupted Windows 10 update, so I'm in the process of rebuilding the system. I get Premiere Elements 14 installed and when I fire it up to start working on a previous project, it's changed all of my text to the first listed font in my System Font folder which is a 3 of 9 Barcode font.  I can't delete this font because I use it for rendering labels for work. I am not sure how to get PE to use a different default font. Is there a file I can edit somewhere or registry setting?

In Title Adjustments, go to Styles. Right-click on a Text Style and you can make it your default font.

I've tried that and it doesn't seem to have any effect on the "default text" box or changing any of the pre-existing text overlays I've made.

I think I found the solution. I was having the same problem. After I set a default text style, I would drag and drop a new text box to the editing bar and my preferred default style was not appearing. It's how I've always added texts to my timeline. After watching one of Steve's videos on YT, I saw how he (and probably everyone else) adds text to their videos by simply clicking on the top bar "text" option. After adding text this way, my preferred default text style showed up. Little late to the party but hope this can help others.

Sorry, I don't know why that would be. It might be worth uninstalling the program and reinstalling it.
