We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Mac OS Big Sur and AE 18.2.1
Just upgraded AE, and suddently none of the small dropdown menus work any more. Things like the "1 View/2 Views" menu or "Active Camera/Front/Left/etc". And the dropdowns in the Preview pane "Space Bar/Keyboard 0/etc"
All of them appear for a fraction of a second, and dissapear before I can click anything. It's maddening!
Anyone else have this issue? Know of a fix?
Sorry for your issue.
Would you mind sharing the rest of your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM)? Also, have you tried resetting the preferences yet: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after-effects/td-...
Let us know if it helps.
Hey, thanks for your response. It's a Late 2013 Mac Pro. Specs below:
I have tried trashing the preferences, but no help. Quitting the application and then restarting solves the problem temporarily, but then after a few hours, it's back.
Thanks for the details.
Are you on a dual monitor setup? Also, do you have any peripherals connected to your computer? If so, what happens if you remove them?
Let us know.
Single monitor setup. The only peripherals are a couple of SSDs (Lacie LBD). I'm not sure what would happen if I removed them, as all the files I'm working on are on them.
I'm having this issue with InDesign. Resetting Preferences sometimes helps, but not for long.
same in After effects on M1 Mini

trashing the preferencs fixed it for me
