I find that when I try to do things on Adobe, things are often not intuitive. I'm even willing to admit perhaps there's something wrong with my intuition, but--in case others feel the same way--is Adobe Premiere Pro more intuitive? I would gladly pay for not having to run into a bottle neck every time I do something.

My latest difficulty is in getting some text into my video at the beginning of my song. First I have the audio and video on the timeline. Then, on the bottom toolbar--if that's what you call it--I choose titles and text. I choose one with the titles box on the bottom. One would think that would mean that the rest of the field would be the video I have already added to the timeline. When I click on this titles item, a message says to drag it either to the timeline or to the monitor. When I drag it to the monitor, nothing happens. When I drag it to the timeline, nothing happens. WHen I drag it to "video 2," it does settle there. However, when I then play the project, I only see the title, without the video in the background. I must add that after I  enter the text in my title, it's difficult to get rid of this title box--that is, the box that appears on the right of my monitor.

So again, I'm just throwing away time trying to figure something out. I just don't think it should be that difficult. Perhaps I'm just being difficult--or dense.

Thanks.

If you're struggling with the program, you should start with my free 8 part Basic Training tutorial series. It really is a very intuitive program once you find out where the tools are.

Basic Training for Premiere Elements 2019, Part 1 of 8 - YouTube

Part 7 deals specifically with titles.

I also have a step-by-step guide book available on Amazon and detailed tutorial course available on https://www.linkedin.com/learning/me

Adobe Premiere Pro is not more intuitive.  In my view, it is worse because it has to include so many more complex tools.

To make Premiere elements easier for me, I watched video tutorials organized into courses.  Random YouTubes help, but they are too random.

The best courses I've found are done by Steve Grisetti that also moderates this forum.  He mentions that he has an 8 part series on YouTube.  He has a more thorough version on Linda.com/Linkedin Learning.   Those can often be accessed through a local library.  If not you first month is free.
