So many bugs in new release of Premier Pro - can't even use it. Gone back to 2017 version as I have projects that must get done.
Fix the Bugs!
The need to solo/unsolo an audio track to here it is not a mac thing. I'm having the same problem on PC. For me, each time I re-open the project, some of the audio tracks are not acknowledged. They don't hit the audio meter and I can't hear them. It took me a long time to figure out that it was a simple matter of turning it off, then on to resolve.
The new version has been hanging a lot (not responding), but eventually comes back. I recall this happening when doing things that relates to the Project tab. For example, if I reorganize sequences into bins (especially the ones that are open), or do things relating to integration with AE which creates new items in the Project tab.
I've also noticed that it rearranges my window positions each time I close the program. It keeps moving my main window to my second monitor (so they end up overlapping each time I open the project). Small thing but annoying.
Thanks in advance for your attention to these matters.

Agree, new release is terrible. Massive performance hit particularly with Multicam - I created a multi group of 6 cameras in new version and it wouldn't play well at all. I exported an xml of the sync sequence and imported that into 2017 where it played really smoothly. Opening the 2017 project in 2018 (it gets converted) made the multi group choppy and unplayable again.
Performance hit also makes the essential graphics title tool unusable.
Also when you open a project you often have to solo and unsolo an audio track to hear anything, it often crashes on renders and the video/audio usage drop down menus no longer work.
Is this a general thing, a mac thing or should I try re-installing?
One being dropping clips into the sequence doesn't show up... then all of a sudden does after ages of clicking around. Then the bar that moves when playing it - you can't move it to where you want and it completely disappears too... New Version completely unusable for me at the moment. I've got no other option than going back to the older version that works.
