Double-clicking Library assets to Preview in CS 9?

This is kinda driving me insane and I wonder if others are seeing it to?

Quite often (not always but often) when I double-click an asset in the CS 9 library, it doesn't open the Preview.

Sometimes it works if I try another asset and then go back to the original one I wanted to preview...sometimes not.

Anybody having trouble Previewing stuff in the Library?

double-clicking any Library asset never previews it for me

I always have to stick it on timeline to see it

Hey Lon,

That's happened to me at times as well.

I've found that if you right click it and chose "Preview" it tends to let you preview a number of assets by double clicking again before it freezes up and quits working.
Another right click and preview leads to more of the same.

I don't really use the preview feature that often and I kinda forgot about that bug.I've let Tech Support know about this bug.

yes, I also have this issue. Drives me bonkers. One thing I did notice though is that if the asset is dark, it will not show up against the back background in the preview window.
