Strange Text Tool Selection Error
Strange Text Tool Selection Error
by Andy Jay on Mar 19, 2019 at 4:17:35 pm


Ok so I am running AE 2018 & 2019 due to glitches. 2018 Has been my work around.

Today I have opened a build that has been problem free.

When I use the TEXT Tool to select the text (highlight to edit the text), it doesn't work.

It will only create a new empty text layer.

I have uninstalled and tried both versions of AE.

Hopefully I am not missing something obvious, any ideas appreciated.

ps - I am running the previous version of AE due to this kind of error, but now it is happening in both.
