I'm running Premiere Elements 13, with all updates applied, on OS X 10.10 and each time it crashes within two to five minutes after launch. There does not appear to be a particular action that triggers the crash and does not happen at the same time. I have sent the crash reports in, assuming Adobe reads those.
I have verified my Mac meets the OS X system requirements and have also closed down every running program to free up as much system resources as possible. I am also using a trackpad. I have seen some forum discussions suggesting previous versions of PE crashed due to a trackpad being used. Is this still the case with PE 13?
Is there anything else I can try to fix this?
The recommended forum post didn't work out. What appears to have worked, at least to this point, is the following:
In my case I ran both Repair Disk and Repair Disk Permissions. It's been about 3-4 days after applying this and PE 13 no longer randomly crashes.
