When trying to do anything in the program, if I click on anything that click will just remain there, highlighted, until I hit the spacebar, which seems to release the hold. I have to do this for every single step. Sometimes, if that fails, I have to act like I am closing the program, hit cancel, and it will allow to me complete one step.
I am not doing any complicated edits, and it doesn't seem to matter what size the videos are.
I have updated and cleared the media cache, and nothing seems to help.
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces: Reset a workspace Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels. 1. Do one of the following: • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout. • Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout. from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean install of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver).
