Maybe try re-setting your preferences. With After Effects closed hold down shift/control/alt and click on the icon to open AE. Keep holding the keys and let the system make changes. 

Hopefully the text will work better afterwards.

My guess would be a corrupt font file. Go to /windows/fonts and move every font except system fonts in a temp folder and see if AE Text works again. If so, you can move your fonts back let's say 10 at a time until you find the faulty one.

Or, this happened to me once: I installed a really fancy medieval font with lots of grunged edges which was too much for the text renderer.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi zoom4267,

 

Sorry for your issue.

Did any of the suggestions help? If not, try resetting the Windows font cache. Here's how: https://www.isunshare.com/windows-10/how-to-delete-font-cache-in-windows-10.html

Let us know if it brings any change.

 

Thanks,

Nishu
