I recently started adding titles to my Premiere Pro project. Until an hour ago, the text boxes would just show whenever I dragged the text button like I always do.
But now, the text boxes don't appear anymore. I can still see the text itself and I can edit it (without an indication of where I'm typing because the text-cursor has also vanished), but I can't see the boxes around them with the handles to make them bigger or smaller. Selecting the text also doesn't work anymore.
I clicked on the Text tool and the box on the timeline, yet the box on the screen and its handles don't appear.
I tried to search if I accidentally did something with the preferences, but that's all the same. I seriously don't understand what on earth could have happened. Please, help me. And yes, I've already tried restarting the program, creating a new file, a new sequence, everything; the boxes still don't show.
Thank you for reading! I hope anyone can help me with this because I have a serious deadline coming up.
Thank you very much for your response! I couldn't really fix it myself, but after I pressed buttons for thirty minutes, the boxes came back!
Very odd indeed, but thank you for your help.
Very small adjustments of the window up or down can make the boxes appear or disappear....
So I have the same issue, and setting the scaling back to 100% fixed it, however now everything is too small to see clearly on my monitor because 125% is the automatic "recommended" setting on my screen. I recently was editing with a borrowed second monitor and I think thats when i noticed the issued started, it was fine before then so is there a different fix that isnt related to scaling?
At times 150% or 200% can work but not 125% or 175%. You can try those.
how exactly would i be able to fix this though? i'm completely new to PR and i for the most part only know the very basics. like where would i click?
I was able to get the bounding box for a text object to display in Premiere Pro (2019 - version 13.1.2 build 9) by going to the Program monitor (the big panel in the top-right corner of the Editing layout (Window > Workspaces > Editing), the one that shows the video preview), selecting the wrench icon at the bottom, and then turning on Rulers.
Without the rulers turned on I get no bounding box on the text, nor on masks, sssoooo....yeah...it's inconvenient in the default setting. But we're good now though!
where is the wrench icon?
In the program monitor panel, bottom right mostly, just by the timecode to the right at the bottom of the image.
