Been awhile since I used AE (2020) and getting things confused with other programs. Just completed a reinstall of AE 2020 via Adobe chat assist.

 

I'm at the beginning stage of laying out simple text, no special effects at this point, no 3D, and using the Standard Workspace.

 

I have 2 layers. One where an intial phrase appears, then a few seconds later where more text completes the sentence.  

 

ISSUE: When I press the spacebar to preview things, a smaller pop-up monitor appears to the right, and bottom of the Composition Panel, and I cannot see much of the playback. This hasn't happened in earlier projects with the same app version and system (iMac Catalina).

 

In the past, the preview took place front-and-center, in the Composition Panel. I am overlooking a setting somewhere, but where? Thanks.

At the end of a chat session with Adobe Support, with no luck in resolving the issue with AE 17.0 on a Catalina iMac, the agent sent a weblink to install release version 18.0 (2021). *The current version of AE (2022) is incompatable with my older machine.

 

Release 18.0 did the trick. All is well, and kudos to Adobe Support.

thanks, but didn't see any options under File > Project Settings > Video Rendering Effects.

It all worked before the recent 2020 reinstallation. Any further thoughts?

*my graphics card is older, and entry-level.

this is the icon attached to my October 2021 project file. I am not entirely sure what version I was using before... does the icon help identify the AE release version? txs.
