I have a problem when following the digits man 1 tutorial. I do everything as explained but when I change the size of the text to 14 and copy and paste, when i get past half way down the composition text box, the whole of the text dissapears. I have tried it on various larger font sizes e.g 28, 50 etc and it works fine.I have tried changing the size of the comp to 500×500 and it works at font size 14. what is the problem any ideas?

I have exactly the same problem as you Ian, it happens to me at about 75% of the comp full. I have tried increasing my ram and disk caches but that didn’t work. I’m working at a 1024×576 resolution. I hope someone knows an answer!

Found a work around, just press space bar and you’re good to go. If you do it at random locations it will even seem like it’s intended!
