    How do I open title tool in 2019?

    I used to know how to open the Title Tool in 2018, but not in 2019.

    When I open the Title Tool Application under Tools, I get an error message that reads: "Please use Avid Titler+ from the Effects Palette for this project size."

    When I try to click on New Title under Clip, I get the same error message.

    My video is going to be 640 X 360.

    When I try to open Avid Titler+ under Tools, nothing happens.

    When I click on Title in the Effects Palette, again, nothing.

    So can someone please explain to me how to create titles in 2019?

    When you went from 2018.x to 2019.x did you create new user settings? If not, I'd try creating a new user and see if you can create a title with either the Title Tool or Titler+.

    No I did not.  This is not something I've done before.  How do you create user settings?  Do you mean I have to create a new user profile?  I'm afraid if I do that, I'll get the same results.

    UPDATE: OK, I found the user settings and put a check mark on Title Tool under Create New Title Using and a check mark on Yes under Promote Title Tool Titles to Marquee and a check mark on Backup Title On Promote and I'm still getting the same results.

    Yes, that's what I mean.

    Well, if you get the same results then you'll know user settings are not causing the problem, we'll need to try other troubleshooting steps, and you can go back to your original user settings.

    If the problem goes away with a new user, then you know your old user settings are corrupt and you need to create new ones.

    It's up to you.

    OK, I just created a new user profile and it works now.

    Since the title tool in 2019 is radically different from 2018, I will just need to figure out how to operate it.

    Oh, and thanks.
