In the last couple of days Director 11.5 has stopped working properly in the authoring environment. It in turn has stopped me working as I struggle to fix it. Working around it is bad enough on a project that is mostly in place, but creating new apps is impossible.
eg. I can't drag a cast member onto the stage
I can't drag a cast member to a different location in the cast
I can't drag a behaviour onto a sprite, either from the script window or from the cast
I can't reposition a sprite by drag and dropping to a different position in the score
What can I still do?
I can reposition a sprite by drag and dropping to a different position on the stage
Dragging and dropping is working fine within Windows. eg move a file into a folder with drag and drop
To try and fix this I have done the following, none of which helped.
Checked for updates - it redownloaded hotfix1 which I had already installed months ago
I have deleted the preferences folder and that didn't help. By that folder I mean C:\Users\Tollon\AppData\LocalLow\Adobe\Director 11 (by the way, I thought this folder was meant to be in Roaming, is that usual? I doubt it is the cause of my curse though)
I uninstalled and reinstalled Dir11.5
Any ideas? Thanks
I've just noticed someone had this problem back in August
I have shutdown (several times), and unfortunately restore points weren't turned on so I can't try that option.
For what its worth I'm running Vista on a macbook pro on Bootcamp.
I will reply to the other message to see if that user found a solution.
