In PP 15, when double-clicking a caption to edit the text, the UI changes the text (in English) into Wingdings or Glyphs (not sure which). When I change focus away from the UI, the font reverts back to English. See attached screenshot.
Is this a bug in the Beta, or a font issue on my system? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
[ Windows 10 / Premire Pro 15.0 fresh upgrade ]
What font are you using? I have seen a difference between the Program Monitor and the Text Panel related to Arabic characters.
I believe Arial. The .SRT file is generated by YouTube with time encoding. The odd thing is that the caption displays fine in the Captions panel. It's only when I select caption text does it change to Glyphs in the edit box.
Yes, this is different: the difference I can produce is from the Text Panel (where it shows correctly) and the Program Monitor (where it may show limitations of the font selected there).
I would file a bug report. I'll post the link below. But let's explore your srt. Sometimes issues have occurred because the srt is the wrong encoding. I look at it in Notepad++ under the Encoding tab. PR prefers UTF-8 with BOM.
My problem seems to have nothing to do with the .SRT file actually. If I do not import a file, and manually create a caption text block, it will display the PP read-able system font. But if I click the box to edit 'New Caption', then it displays those words in Glyphs. Yesterday I tried uninstalling and installing the PP15 upgrade, but it didn't resolve the issue.
Will file the bug.
Note: I forgot to mention that YouTube actually products a .SBV file that has to be converted to .SRT. There could be future issues with that, but I think my current Glyph issue is unrelated to the import file.
Let us know how it goes.
I have the same issue. I installed the middle east version of Premiere (which I need), I wonder if it is related to that.
We're sorry about the poor experience. This issue has been addressed in our latest Beta build. You may download the latest Beta build from the Creative Cloud Desktop app. Refer to this link to know more about public Beta.
