Hello everyone,

 

I've got a problem for a long time with After Effects and i would like to know if you have the same.

When I type text on After effects, sometimes, a letter is forgotten, i don't know why. I don't have this problem with Premiere, Photoshop, etc. Only with After effects. It became impossible for me to write anything on the software because of that problem.

Do you know how to fix this? I had the same problem before with the CC 2019 as well.

 

Thank you,

Are you referring to how you may be typing "HELLO" and only see "HELL" until you complete the text entry?  

 

If so, I've seen that lag in both vesrion 15 (cc2018) and version 16 (cc2019).  It's not consistent, either.  So sometimes the text entry refreshes as expected and other times it lags.

 

I tend to copy and paste from a text document (usually Word or TextEdit, but sometimes a client supplied PDF or email) which maintains the formatting on the AE side.  Occassionaly I'll copy and paste from Photoshop or Illustrator which retains the PS or AI formatting.

This is exactly my problem, sometimes it's working, sometimes not. So the best way is to copy/paste a text document, which is not what i prefer. 

 

You never found a solution for that issue?

 

Thank you Warren

This is a strange issue. I assume you are typing into a Text Layer?

 

Please provide your complete system specs and OS language as well as AE's installation language.

Is it possible to switch to AE to English to see if the problem goes away? Then, send in a Bug Report on the outcome. HTH

The issue is  when you tape a letter won't appear you should tape another letter to make the previous letter appear  for example  HELLO  I have to write HELLOO  to get HELLO

Do this as well:

  • Make a text layer and type some text
  • Highlight all the text you typed.
  • Go to the Character panel, right-click on the hamburger-looking horizontal line icon, and select Reset Character
