I have just installed Prem 8 from my old version 4, love the look and ease of editing but when I try to add text using the tool the box shows in the workspace but when clicked nothing happens or if I dare to use the text menu the programme crashes....... What can I check?
Core 2 duo 2.26ghx
500Gb hard drive 400Gb free
320Gb hard drive 300Gb free
NVidea geForce 9600M GT
All updates complete. This is frustrating the hell out of me as I only want to add a simple title and credits at the end but after 10 attempts and crashes the computer is getting close to the window!!!!!
Hope somone can help.
Welcome to the forum.
One of the most common causes for Titler (the Title creation/editing utility in PrE) to crash is a bad, or corrupt font in the system. This article goes into more detail: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4381123#4381123
Titler is probably the most font sensitive Adobe program.
Good luck, and hope that is helpful.
