Hi everyone,

Wondering if anyone has experienced the same glitch as me and some of my teammates. When I select an entire sentence or line of type using the type tool, it will not allow me to select the first or last letters. For example, if I need to adjust a bullet color at the beginning of a sentence, I cannot select it. I have to type more things, create the bullet, and then go back and delete everything before it. It's VERY frustrating.

 

I'm running the latest version of After Effects (2022) on a Mac which is running Catalina.

This has been a bit quirky for me also. Usually double clicking on the lettering will select it all. Hope this helps.

Hi Kristi,

 

Welcome to the community.

The After Effects team is aware of this issue and they are working on a fix. Sorry for the inconvenience. As the experts suggested, workarounds like Double-clicking or using the Shift+Arrow keys are still working.

Feel free to reach out if there are any other questions.

 

Thanks,

Nishu
