Thanks Kevin, I'll try that. Didn't know the tip on holding down the Shift + Option keys on the Mac to delete Premiere prefs.
It seems the main programs that deleting prefs fixes somethings are video related apps. I don't really understand how these programs corrupt prefs more easily than other programs. I've never had to delete prefs for Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator or hardly any other programs. Mostly video editing apps. Do you know of any online article that discusses this? Thanks!
The resetting of Prefs has been around Photoshop, almost from its introduction. The PREF file(s), can be corrupted, and it seems by myriad factors. That said, I have used PS from the very beginning on a PC, and have only had to trash my PERF once, when an auto update of another program hit, during a Save for a very large PSD. That is over about 20 years of extensive use. However, corruption happens often enough, that most forum folk have the tips bookmarked to help all the users, who do experience issues.
Hey Bill, glad to hear PC users have to trash prefs too on occasion I was just wondering why video apps seem to have more issues with corrupting prefs.
