I have had 5.0.322 for 4 days and love it. With the help of some online tutorials I have been able to do a lot. I got used to the new interface fairly quickly but had a few "moments" at first. Most of what I learned was possible in 4.5 but having the new software get me interested in learning again.
Occasionally, when I am editing a keyframe that has already worked fine, the software will hang up and show that it is playing or loading or something but never completes the task. The only way to get out of it is to do the CTRL/ALT/DEL solution. I have a great computer with plenty of speed and memory.
- adding moving text (left to right) which is following a moving png file. Just abandoned the idea.
- adding a keyframe to the end of a slide
I have learned a couple of things. My sound file was a little too loud. I went in and reduced the amplitude by 4db in my audio editor and that seemed to solve some of the issues.
Thanks for sharing all of your experiences, I have learned a lot form this exchange.
