Sometimes when I try to hide After Effects, it won't work.
For example, if I am in the Finder and choose "Hide Others" from the File menu, sometimes After Effects hides, sometimes not. When it doesn't, all of my other applications do go hidden. So it's probably not a bad OS or something.
There have been occassions when it has gone hidden (I think!). But once it stops hiding, I can't get it to hide again (restarting might reset that though).
Does anyone else experience this? Checked the FAQ and didn't see anything.
I'd like to search the forums, but the search tool for the forums here doesn't seem particularly friendly.

What version of AE? These issues were fixed at some point, but I believe only for CS4 on older versions of OSX. Snow Leopard and the latest Macs may be a whole different story, so even if you run CS4, this may be utterly normal in such an environment.
It's CS4, so I guess I am out of luck? Adobe has made some odd forced workflow choices over the last few years!
