You can save a combination of color properties and font characteristics as a style, for later use. You can save any number of styles. Thumbnails of all saved styles appear in the Title Styles panel, so you can quickly apply your custom styles across projects. Premiere Pro also includes a set of default styles.

By default, Premiere Pro stores all saved styles as style library files that use the .prsl filename extension. When you save a style library, you are saving the entire set of styles that are displayed in the Titler.

The preset style library is stored in the following location:

  • (Windows) Program Files/Adobe/Premiere Pro [version]/Presets/Styles

  • (Mac OS) Applications/Premiere Pro [version]/Presets/Styles

Custom styles are stored in the following location:

  • (Windows) My Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/[version]/Styles

  • (Mac OS) Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/[version]/styles

If you share styles, make sure that the fonts, textures, and background files used are available on all systems.

The Current Style thumbnail always shows the properties that you have applied to the currently selected element.

Modify the style swatch display

The Title Styles panel displays the default style library and style swatches you create or load. The display defaults to show large swatches of sample text with the loaded style applied. However, you can choose to view your styles in small swatches or by the style name only.

  • In the Title Styles panel menu, choose one of the following:

    Text Only

    Displays only the style name.

    Small Thumbnails

    Displays only small swatches of sample text objects with the styles applied to them.

    Large Thumbnails

    Displays only large swatches of sample text objects with the styles applied to them.

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences > Titler (Windows), or Premiere Pro > Preferences > Titler (Mac OS).
  2. In the Style Swatches box, type up to two characters that you would like to appear on the style swatches.
  3. Click OK.

Delete, duplicate, or rename, a style

  • In the Title Styles panel, do any of the following:

    • To delete a style, select it, and then choose Delete Style from the Title Styles panel menu.

    Note:

    This procedure deletes only the swatch or name from the display area. The style remains in the library. Use the Append Style Library, Reset Style Library, or Replace Style Library command to display the style library again.

    • To duplicate a style, select it, and choose Duplicate Style from the Title Styles panel menu. A duplicate of the selected style appears in the Title Styles panel.

Manage style libraries

After you create a style, you can save it in a collection, or style library, with other styles. By default, the styles you create appear in the current style library, but you can create libraries in which to save styles. For example, you can delete the current library display, create styles as you work, and then save those styles in their own library.

  • In the Title Styles panel, do any of the following:
    • To restore the default style libraries, choose Reset Style Library from the Styles menu.

    • To save a style library, choose Save Style Library from the Styles menu. All styles visible in the Styles section are saved. Specify a name and location for the style library file and click Save. Premiere Pro saves style library files with the extension .prsl.

    • To load a saved style library, select Append Style Library from the Title Styles panel menu. Then browse to the style library, select it, and click Open (Windows), or Choose (Mac OS).

    • To replace a style library, choose Replace Style Library from the Title Styles panel menu. Browse to the style library that you want to use as a replacement, select it, and click Open (Windows), or Choose (Mac OS).
