I haven't experienced it, but -- are you using a tablet as an input device? Also, what other apps do you have running in the background? What apps have you opened and then closed during your Premiere Pro session?
Premiere forces completion an instant after entering edit mode.
Great questions Jeff... let's see:
- wacom tablet- yes
- 3d Studio Max
- After Effects
- Access Database
I'll try troubleshooting this by eliminating outside applications from the equation, next time it happens. I have a feeling it is Synergy, since it shares the mouse and keyboard over a network connection. Thanks again.
I'd also investigate the Wacom settings and how Windows is set up for a pen tablet (Control Panel | Hardware and Devices | Pen and Touch). Look at Camtasia as well since the Recorder applet can steal keyboard and mouse commands when you least expect it.
As you have probably surmised, I suspect something that's not you or Pr is committing the label change right away.
This will be an interesting one to track down- when the behavior only occurrs after using Pr for an undefined time (20 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours), and closing all other applications does not solve the issue. That is not to say that they are not causing it initially. From my perspective Pr is allowing this thing to happen. Thanks for the feedback.
Just an example that may help: I have a Wacom tablet, and it started behaving badly in Cinema 4D despite the fact that it had worked perfectly just hours before. The only thing I had done in between was rip some of my CD collection to FLAC using Exact Audio Copy. EAC was not open when the C4D pen issue appeared. I rebooted, and pen operation in C4D returned to normal. I ripped a CD or two with EAC, and the bad pen behavior in C4D returned.
I have no idea why EAC should affect pen/tablet behavior in C4D, but it does. So the issue you see in Pr may well be from unexpected and illogical sources. Regardless, I hope you get it sorted quickly.
Crazy and Causal! Yeah, it is a system, no denying that. Sad to say, I've been avoiding the issue by restarting Premiere, the frequency is low enough (and my deadline is close enough) that I'm just sidestepping it right now. I would like to get to the bottom of it, but have to wait for the behavior to pop-up before I can do anything about it.
By the way- tablet has been out of the equation today. The problem pops up anyway. In general, I'm not crazy about Windows 7's handling of tablets. I wish they would just leave them alone.
Camtasia is off right now, no problem lately. We'll see if it rears it's head with Camtasia closed.
