Thanks, Hunt, for responding to my question. I should tell you, that I'm a very recent convert from FCP and this is my first go at Encore. Did I install functional content? I thought I installed everything on my download.
But how would I know what did/didn't get installed? The only items active in my Edit>Preferences is History. Everything else is grayed out.
Thank you Hunt, thank you Stan. That solved that problem. No doubt, as a recent convert from FCP, I'll be back with more questions. But nice to know that the Adobe Forum is equally helpful, astute, and generous as was the Final Cut Forum. Many thanks.
Never hesitate to drop by with any questions.
We are seeing a lot of FCP converts, and welcome them with open arms.
There will be similarities, but also some differences. The folk here will attempt to smooth out those differences.
Now, if things get deep in "Mac-speak," I will have to sit on the side-lines, as I am a PC-only guy, but for general "stuff," will try to help.
As for the "points," only you (or a MOD) can even see the little buttons for that. There should be 1 "Correct Answer" button available to you, on each Reply, until that has been awarded. Many refer to it as "The Big 10." Then, the OP has the potential to award 4 "Helpful Answers," worth 5 points each. That number was recently up'ed from 2. Once all of those have been awarded, you, the OP, will see "Unmark," or similar.
Good luck, and happy authoring.
I can see that you logged in (not just responding from email); that was my only thought, then I notice that this was initiated through the help document. "You" are not the "original poster," so can't rate or give points.
This is an example of the advantages and disadvantages of automatically linking comments on the help page to the forum. You got some help, but this whole thread is now on that help page. And you don't really control the thread here in order to rate it. But the good clearly outweighs the disadvantage.
This is just a guess on my part, but as the OP came via the Community Help, it might be that you do not have those buttons available, when using that route - same as a post that I originate, but do not designate as a 'Question." In that case, there are no "Correct Answer," "Helpful Answer," ec. buttons - so not points. Remember, that is but a guess, and the Community Help posts are still fairly new, so many of us are "learning, as we go."
The important thing is that you are now authoring!
