Hi, does anybody know how to remove effects that have been pasted with property links? Not sure if I'm using them incorrectly or if this is a bug. I have the Roughen Edges effect (pasted with property links) applied to a bunch of different text layers and when I try to delete the effect from any one individual layer (that's not the original copy) the application crashes. I think I may have been too aggressive with using the same "parent" effect in too many places, but I can't seem to undo this mistake... For now, I'm just disabling the effect, but this isn't a super ideal solution. Anyone have any ideas?

 

I'm running macOS Big Sur version 11.1 with After Effects version 17.5.1 – let me know if more information is needed.

Mostly it looks like a bug, try to open this project on a different PC and see if you still face the same issue, and if so as Roland says report this bug here https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html
