    Apparent bug in AE CC - Shape layer deleted, but shape remains

    Donovandean

      The shape tool in my AE is acting very buggy.  Specifically, the problem seems to occur when I use the pen tool to draw a shape, and then ctrl+z to delete that shape because I didn't like how it was drawn.   To my surprise, the shape layer disappears off the timeline, but the shape itself remains on the composition viewer window, but is completely unalterable/non-responsive.

       

      As you can see, in the composition, there are only two layers, one for a muzzle flash image, and one for the video. No masks or hidden layers, but the shape layer of a white square that I drew remains in the viewer window after I ctrl+z removed it from the composition.
