Premiere 15.2 unresponsive when importing any standard still graphics
I'm trying to simply import a graphic into Premiere and put it on the timeline, and when I do, I can't see the playhead when I try to click anywhere on the timeline, and won't show the scrubbing of the video. When I remove the graphic from the timeline, everything's OK again. I tried with different graphics, different formats (JPG, PNG, PSD), all "normal" size graphics for HD for crying out loud, nothing crazy like 32000 pixels or anything - although your software should be able to handle anything in 2021. You've had the ability to import graphics for YEARS - HOW COULD YOU BREAK THIS?? I swear, if DaVinci Resolve could import vector graphics I'd be back in a heartbeat.

Actually, I recently discovered a clue about this problem. I produce regular short web series, which means that when new versions of Premiere come out, I just open the same project file and have it convert to the new version under a new name (since the original project already has all the common elements I need from show to show). However, I notice that if I'm working with the older bins that were there before (such as the bin I use for recurring elements like show opens or stock videos/photos/graphics, etc.) and try to import something to that bin after the project's been converted to the new version, that's when I get the flaky responsiveness, and as soon as I take it off the timeline and get it out of that bin, everything's fine. When I create a new bin and import the same graphic or whatever that gave me issues before, that same exact graphic behaves itself and works well in the same timeline.
Therefore, I would like to see Adobe make stability improvements for when older projects are opened in newer versions of Premiere, that the older things don't get corrupted.
