Hi all.

 

This problem only started today. I click on the text graphic in the timeline, which brings up the text properties effect control panels. I change the text size and rotation, but it has absolutely zero effect. Size and orientation remain unchanged. I've done this many times before with no problems, so I am not sure why it's not working now. Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT: Never mind. There are actually multiple "Text Properties" in the Effects Control. I was trying to edit one of these that had no text. I found one that had the correct text I had added, changed the properties and it worked. I think I may have double-clicked a few times on the pink text bar in the timetime before I had actually entered any text, and these actions created new but empty "text" properties in the Effects Controls. If that makes any sense.
