I am working on AE 17.1.3 on Windows 10

 

I have a Project which i have built into a controllable template with a master 'control' comp containing adjustment layers with Dropdown menu's controlling opacity PreComps, Sliders controlling text layers, and some checkboxes.

 

Everything runs fine and smoothly as expected

 

however whenever i duplicate Compositions within the Project panel (by Ctrl C + V) all the Dropdown Menu's retuen to their original state (i.e. the first index label)

 

This happens regardless of whether the Composition is open to view or not.

 

Very , VERY, frustrating

 

any help greatly appreciated

 

thanks

Why not simply duplicate them directly using Ctrl+D? Otherwise the behavior is normal.

haha yes it does appear that this is the case... 

 

for some reason i have always used ctrl/cmd c+v. to copy and paste...a habit of many years using mac/pc, as well as being a slower method for duplication also causes issue with the dropdown ha!

 

i will have to retrain my brain to use ctrl+d for foreseeable

 

thanks 🙂

... however still a huge bug that needs to fixed ASAP

 

as if you do accidentally ctrl C + V within the project while you are working, it resets EVERYTHING

 

as i have just found out!

 

so frustrating.
