My default setting was always timecode/ time units but now it is frames. Every time I start a new project I have to change the counter from frames to time code/ time units in both preview and timeline panels, help please!

If you use a sequence preset to create your sequences, Premiere will use the time display format used in that preset, so check that preset's settings and look if it's "Display Format" is set to frames, if so, choose timecode and save that preset, or use a preset that uses timecode instead of frames

Well, it's super easy to use a preset, and once you do it will be the default whenever you create a new sequence.

It's in the menus in the Timeline panel. There's the 3-bar menu for each timline, and also the wrench menu for the timeline header control block. Working from memory I forget which one that 'lives' in.

Thank you for the reply but I know how to change it from frames to time code/ time units, what I want to know is how to change the default so I don't need to change it every time. In the past the default was timecode not frrames, not how it got switched.

That's ... odd. Mine still defaults to timecode. Not sure what's happened there. Not at my computer, so I can't bring up the Prefs, but I can't offhand remember a pref for this.

I have not used sequence presets, perhaps time to start. Still wish I could set default to timecode as it was before...

As Neil said, also you can ctrl + click on the frames number and it will switch to timecode
