spacebar preview doesn't always stop on second spacebar press
on Feb 18, 2018 at 6:04:50 pm

Lately in AE (one of the recent updates) the spacebar preview has started behaving a bit wonky - about 20% of the time when I'm playing a preview and try to stop it (with a 2nd spacebar press) it just carries on playing regardless

Does anyone know if this is a bug or a setting?

you will get used to it. To make sure it happens less uncheck all boxes in your preview window. play from current time

Yeah, I noticed AE didn't stop previewing myself a couple of days ago. Of course, my machine hasn't been shut down or even restarted for a couple of weeks, and I'm running a news broadcast style Avid along with Adobe CC 2017 apps. There's bound to be some accumulated weirdness going on. It won't be a big deal for me until it gets a lot worse.

So why not just shut off my machine? Following an inability to boot it up after a weekend, I called on the station IT Lady, who declared it was on its last legs. I didn't want to risk further problems, so it stays on.

A brand-new machine should be arriving in a few days. It's a rush priority.

[Richard Garabedain] "you will get used to it"
Ha, I wish - it isn't happening all the time and I'm an editor so i spend half my time on programs like avid that do respond to start/stops reliably. I'm finding it really distracting to have to pause and wait for AE when I'm ready to work on something right by where the playhead was...

[Dave LaRonde] "my machine hasn't been shut down or even restarted for a couple of weeks"
I can't say the same for my machine - plenty of restarts and it's been going on for a few weeks

I've sent a bug report
