I have few queries. And I guess there are inter related.

1> While I move my timeline slider with mouse keeping it clicked, it's not previewed on my screen (the video or animation) .
I have to move the slider and leave the mouse click, then only the video or animation on screen changes to where I have stopped my timeline slider. Earlier it was not like this. Earlier while I used to move the slider, the video used to progress too as per the timeline.

2> When I animate my text, or anything ;for example - text, shape layer or any outside layer of illustrator or photoshop, there is this problem that occurs. When I move my layer with mouse to give it new Position, while moving the layer is not seen, only the outside box appears of the layer. For example, I have a text layer named 'ADOBE'. So If I click it and move, while moving, the text 'ADOBE' disappears, only the outside BOX is seen which becomes dificult to exactly position it.

3> Third query is also related to the 2nd one...and maybe to the 1st one too......
If I make a layer to 3D layer. And then add a camera layer to it. So when I move the camera angle to animate the layer, again the layer disappears while moving the camera tool, only the box is seen while moving, and when I leave the click on mouse, the layer appears again. It becomes dificult to animate as I dont see the layer while moving.

Help me :( as soon as you can.
Thanking you,

Here's a link to some information about fast previews in AE:
You should select the Fast Preview at the bottom of your Comp window to be able to see changes in the comp window as you scrub the timeline. The other issues you mentioned are related to this as well.

I got a temporary solution from the thread you posted.
All the three issues of mine are solved when I press ALT and then Scrub through the timeline. And even the box issue was solved when I pressed ALT and then moved the layer.

So is there anything I am doing wrong? how can I permanently solve this problem instead of clicking Alt everytime?
