Okay I have been using PE 12 and with my newest project some of the features are not working. I had already completed a project earlier this year probably about 2 months ago and it was fine and now things seem to have changed.
I am using Windows 10 on my computer and that has not changed. What is not active/working is when I go to start a new project I am not able to set my preferences, so that when I go to the project my settings are not the way that I would like to see them. For instance all of my slides on my timeline are at 3 seconds when I usually set them for 6 seconds. Than my transition come in at 0 seconds when I want them to be 1 second. Than also when I high light my slides on my timeline the feature to reset the seconds how I want them works sometimes and not other times.
This is all new and I am wondering if this doesn't happen so that I will be more or less forced into upgrading to the newest and latest? It is like my GPS on my car all of a sudden the card does not read anymore thus requiring me to purchase a new one/just an analogy
Thankfully this is a small project so I can manually set the timings how I would like them but if this was a larger project I would be forced to upgrade. Thanks ahead of time.
First and foremost thank you for replying to my question. I did not mean to sound accusatory but was merely asking if that was a possibility as so often these days things change without our being made aware of it and I find that frustrating. This was more of a curiosity question.
I have done what you suggested, did an uninstall and a reinstall and that cleared up some of the problems but not all. The transition feature now seems to be working but when I import my slides onto my timeline they still come in at 3 seconds but my setting preferences states 180 frames which if I recall that should be 6 seconds. If I am incorrect on my calculations than I stand corrected.
Like I stated fortunately this is not a long presentation so I can manually tweek everything and when I do a much longer project I know that is probably past time that I upgrade to the newest product available.
So thank you again for responding to my original question it is always appreciated
