Premiere pro 14.4.0 build 38 freezes when editing essential graphics texts
Every time that I create an essential graphics object with a text and font "Objektiv Mk2" or other texts, then add and start editing a secondary text layer, premiere pro will freeze, and eventually crash.
This is very frustrating. I don't remember I had this issue with previous versions.
Also, it never freeze when I use mogrt files in essential graphics, just normal text layers.

There is some very similar happening to me, but I'm using another type font: Montserrat.
After having added a new MOGRT (created on AE) to the timeline, I can't edit it or preview this part of the video. It freezes or slows sown. Worst: other MOGRTs previously added stop working also. Some got a zebra pattern on them.
If I restart the project, everything works again, but just until the next issue.
It is very annoying. The MOGRT is just a type animated with animator + PIN&BOXEs plugin, which I have been using for a long time without problems. Until now...
Awesome. It seems you reproduced it. Please let me know if you still need a project sample.
Oh wait! I take it back! I missed the step about re-starting the project. Filing a bug on this now and I'll let you know as soon as there's a fix in Beta.
Thanks so much for the steps!
That does sound super frustrating and like a huge pain. I just tried to reproduce the crash with the steps below but I'm not hitting it. Would you mind sharing the project and AE Mogrt you're working with?
Thanks for bringing this to our attention,
It seems this happens when I have two layers of essential graphics and both are being displayed in the viewport. If I move essential graphics text, to another location in timeline and edit it, it won't freeze/crash. When both layers are overlapping, any text edits will lead to freeze.
Everything seems fine, until I re-start and reopen premiere project and try to edit the text
video layer 1: Mogrt AE text in video layer 1
video layer 2: An essential graphics text
