My After Effects is working great, everything is fine until i start adding text. The moment i put text into a composition everything stops working, i can barely change the position of a piece of text without the enitre app crashing/lagging, let alone add an effect etc. Its extremely frustrating, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Error or problem
Freeze or hang
User interface or workspaces
Sorry for your issue. What's the exact version of After Effects you're using. Does it happen with a particular font or any font you use? I remember there was a bug creating similar issues if SF Pro font was used in the project.
I'm using After Effects 2022, version 22.2.1. I recently tried uninstalling/re-installing to fix the issue, which didn't work, so the software is completely up to date. I just checked and that did happen to be the font i was using, i changed the font and it seems to have fixed the issue.
