My right click doesn´t work to expand the tool options in Premiere nor After Effects. I can expand the tool options in AE with the shortcut key, but not in Premiere. It is very dissaponting and I see this issue(in several ways) in too many posts, with no useful answers to me. I have PC, Windows 10, two monitors. Plese help!!! It is frustrating.

Do you mean the contextual menu for the panels?

Do they work with one monitor disabled?

I don´t know if I mean that. In the tools panel, the little arrow in the bottom right, In photoshop it can be displayed with the right click and I have done it before in AE. But for a few days now, It is not working in AE nor premiere. No, it doesn´t work with one monitor only.

Hi 360VisitasVirtuales,

Is this the current version of these applications? This sounds like a bug that was already fixed. Can you please make sure you are operating with the new versions?

Thanks,
Kevin

I have a CC subscription and it does not say I have to update anything. I update every time, as soon as I can.

omg! i found the solution! click both left and right mouse clicks at the same time - or click them along with the scroll key (middle). it works! i got frustrated with this problem and i didn't want to uninstall install premiere (also resetting preferences didn't work for me) so i just clicked away the mouse! haha - hope it helps someone too! you're welcome!

 

Another is long press on it! 🙂 left mouse click

I think I've worked it out. You need to go to the mac system preference and enable mouse right click

Oh, here's another tip / possible solve. I notice my right click wasn't working when I clicked on a file in the project panel (for example if I wanted to "create sequence" from a file). I realized I had to right click, not on the little file icon, but the actual words (title) of the file, that would pull up the dropdown. Weird, but solved.
