    After some amount of inserted text, the whole text box just disappears.

    This is the maximum amount of characters i can insert:

    And when i add even one more character, everything just disappears:


    Deleted the disc cache.
    Downgraded to every older version of After Effects there is available.
    Roamed the google.
    Nothing…

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on here. Or has After Effects suddenly issued some kind of a “maximum character limit” now?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you.

    I haven’t run into any issues with long text blocks. Can you post a reduced AEP so we can see what you’re seeing and try to reproduce the issue?

    if you drew a text box, i think there is a limit…but actually i think it does have a character limit in general
