The "Edit Effects"- and "Edit Transitions"-buttons at the bottom end of the Tasks/Edit/Effects and Tasks/Edit/Transitions-panels do not work.
In PE 4 those buttons opened the Properties panel (if I remember correctly), but not so in PE 7.
The buttons sometimes look active (I mean: not greyed out), but clicking just does nothing. Once an effect or transition is being selected, the buttons grey out. The same thing happens if you select a clip or transition on the TimeLine. Grey or white: they don't work.
Double clicking a transition opens the Properties window, but double clicking a clip the Preview-panel. So every time I want to open the Properties panel, I need to press that button in the My Project-panel, or have to select Windows/Properties. This is a bit of a nuisance.
I have tried opening PE 7 in different ways (dual monitor, single monitor, hiding/saving docking headers etc.) but that does not make any difference.
What should those buttons do? Indeed opening the Properties panel, as I expect them to do? And if so, how do I get them to work properly?
Thanks Steve. Faster than lightning.
But alas: the buttons don't work as you describe (and as they should and as they did in PE 4).
It so happens that for a different reason (I had lost some project presets) I did a repair/re-install yesterday. I regained the presets, but this "problem" was still the same. I don't have a clue.
