Experiencing problems with my first attempt of adding texts to frozen frames after "Title Designer" phase has started.
There are several steps necessary. I don't know the sequence of doing them. Is causing the problems below.

1. Haven't found the way to delete the "My Title" words from the bounding box. Don't want a title.

2. What do you click on first when you want to move the bounding box from the center of Preview to some
other place like a corner?

3. Font type. I want to use Courier New. System usually changes it to some other font type. How to prevent this?

4. Font size. Every time I have entered a number (like15) into the font size the system quickly changes it to
a larger number. What to do to prevent this?

5. What is the purpose of the "T" in the upper left corner of the edit work area? In past attempts I have noted
it will accept only the first line of words in your text. But no additional lines. Why?

Hi,

Firstly familarise yourself with the concepts of the Title Designer :
https://help.cyberlink.com/stat/help/powerdirector/20/win/enu/13_00_00_creating_titles.html

To gain access to all the editable parameters, ensure you have the Advanced tab selected in Title Designer.
https://help.cyberlink.com/stat/help/powerdirector/20/win/enu/13_03_00_modifying_in_td.html

Then you can commence editing your text:

Answering you initial points:
1. Select the My Title text in the top text box with the T or select the My Title text in th preview screen box and press Delete
2. Move the position by hovering over a boundary line until the cursor becomes a 4 way arrow, lft click, hold and drag the box to your preferred position
3. and 4. Select/highlight your text and change any of the font parameters, those parameters should be held for that title.
5. Just one of PDR's idiosyncracies, I'm afraid. If you hover over the box it will show the full title in the hover box but it's easier to use the preview box for text entry, layout and line spacing etc.

Cheers
