Drag to change value - weird behaviour
on Dec 13, 2010 at 7:30:52 pm

Hi there,

Weird stuff happens when i try to drag-change a value.
For instance, but the same applies to other values:
I want to enlarge my typed text, so normally i would simply drag/slide (howwould you call it) with my cursor and it would enlarge in relation to the travelled cursor-distance.

Now instead of gradually increasing it just jumps to a size of 1296 pixels. Which is a bit large for most cases.

I am using a wacom intuos 3, but the same seems to happen when i use a mouse.

CS5, Mac Pro, Snow Leopard...

If you don't have it, the free update to AE 10.0.1 is a must-have; it could to the trick.

You may also want to search this forum for the word Wacom; I recall reading that certain Wacom drivers cause odd behavior.

not having problems here (cs5, osx 10.5, no tablet).

how about hovering over the value and using the mouses scroll wheel?

Good idea, but doesn.t work either.
Actually wether i use mouse or wacom or cursorkeys, to value just jumps to the max value. The only way to lower it again is typing it.

[Frank Feijen] "Actually wether i use mouse or wacom or cursorkeys, to value just jumps to the max value."

That's why I suggested you search for the word wacom in this forum: I'm pretty sure there's an issue with the wacom drivers, but you need to find out the specifics.

Yeah, found it!

It was all due to a faulty plugin....
