I cannot Paste text (from any software) into Ae, and when I type, I cannot adjust tabs, or paragraph returns... WTH? Is this simply beyond the capabilities of Ae?

How can I have nice text?

Without any system info and other critical details like language settings, fonts, apps used and so on we can't realyl tell you much. As a start reboot the system, check the relevant preferences in AE, the character panel and so on. Also consider deleting the prefs and reinstalling AE.

Mac/OS is Catalina 10.15.7. 

I don't think that the fonts or language (USA english) have anything to do with the issue.. and I don't see preferences (or interface/options) regarding tabs or paragraph spacing... is that because ther are none?

Hi Hugh Betcha,

 

Sorry for your issue.

As suggested by Mylenium, try resetting the preferences of After Effects. Here's how: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-to-find-the-exact-version-of-after-...

Let us know if it helps.

 

Thanks,
