Hey all, I have this mysterious bar that shows up when i press the tilde key in AE. It's distracting.
(Adobe wouldn't let me upload a picture so I used flickr)
EDIT: I'm using a Mac desktop.
That's probably some input helper/ accessibility option on your system. Check your language and region settings or any such tools you may use.
It only happens in After Effects and nothing else, and a search nets me NOTHING. I can't figure it out and it's distracting. i love my tilde key
Try quitting After Effects, deleting the entire preferences directory, and restarting After Effects:
