Something odd has come up just today in my after effects. Basically, when I type anything (text on composition) only several shapes appear in the top left corner of the text box (in composition) almost as though they are stacking on eachother. It has never done this before today. Any suggestions as to what may be happening? I would greatly appriciate any help.
Go to the character pannel, click on the upper right corner and select Reset. That should fix it unless you've recently installed a corrupted font.
