Working with mouse and keyboard in After Effects gives weird problem.
on Nov 2, 2017 at 2:24:50 pm

I have a really weird problem.
When I work in Adobe After Effects and drag an image into My placeholder, I can drag the image with the mouse, but if I use the keyboard, I can no longer use the mouse. If I then press the screen outside After Effects and press a key on the keyboard, I can go back to After Effects and use the mouse, until I use the keyboard again.
Is there someone who knows about this problem and knows how to solve it?

Which AE version are you using? If it's the latest release you should understand that it's loaded with all sorts of weird bugs, and many are yet to be found.

Hey again.

I am using, CC2018 so that must be the reason, but i have tried to install the 2017 version again but that did not helæp out the problem. The problem first started when i upgraded to 2018.

Regards Finn

Ugh. Assuming you did a proper uninstall, you may need to run the Adobe Cleaner application. Sorry, but I don't have a link to its location.

What hardware are you using? Is your mouse and keyboard plugged directly into your computer or do the go through another device like a USB hub? If they do try plugging in directly and rebooting.

I have now solved my problem. It turned out to be windows that was the problem. After an update of windows, everything seems to be working.

I thank you for your help!
