    Re: Media Composer 6.5.0.1 PATCH NOW AVAILABLE!

    Bug in the Settings window: Composer Settings, Window tab. At the bottom of the window the option "Tick Marks in Position Bars" is only partially visible. It is not possible to change this option. If you deselect the option and click OK when you open the Composer Settings again the option will still be selected.

    Also, if there are supposed to be additional options selectable below this option they are completely missing. I don't know if there are or not.

    Similar issue with the Trim Settings dialog box. The Play Loop tab has the last item(?), Intermission, cut off.

    Re: Media Composer 6.5.0.1 PATCH NOW AVAILABLE!

    This is a completely clean install, default windows text and icon sizes.

    I do need to add that I first encountered this issue running NewsCutter 10.5.0.1. Today I had the chance to try Media Composer 6.5.0.1 and while the Composer Setting dialog still has the bottom item cut off the Trim Setting dialog does not.

    So, just to confirm in NewsCutter 10.5.0.1 both the Composer Setting dialog box and Trim Setting dialog box has the bottom items cut off. In Media Comopser 6.5.0.1 only the Composer Setting dialog box has the bottom item cut off.

    An additional bug (in Media Composer at least, haven't tested NewsCutter yet) is that the Title tool cannot be opened. Neither the standard title tool nor the Marquee title tool. There's a brief flash where it looks like it's trying to do something but then nothing. No title tool opens and no error message is displayed.

    Same here, can't open the title tool to edit a title made in 6.5.0.0, I see a progress window for a split second, then its gone, and nothing happens.

    For those of you having title tool issues, there is a bad .dll file that needs to be replaced. Contact Marianna or one of the moderators. She or a moderator will send you the new file and instructions for replacement.

    Hi,

    do you only have the issue with the title tool or also with marquee? If you see the same issue with marquee, then the bad-dll fix possibly won't help.

    thanks and cheers

    I was in your other thread trying to assist Pete, nice that you found this thread and a user with similar problems.

    To uninstall the 6,50,1 patch just checkmark " show patches " in the application uninstall window and the patch should be visible and possible to uninstall.
