CANVAS AND TIMELINE GRAYED OUT and not for obvious reasons

Hello there,

For some reason, I lost the canvas and the timeline window. When I go up to
the menu they are grayed out, I can't figure out how to open them.

Of course, I?ve tried double clicking on the sequence in the browser and nothing will open.

Of course, I?ve tried the short cut keys, I?ve tired restarting the computer and program, I?ve even tried trashing the preferences....

Of course, I?ve tried other projects and making new sequences but
nothing will work, the canvas and the timeline will not open.

Of course, I?ve tried exporting the program and importing it into a brand new project, but nothing.

BUT---all sequences can be exported as quick time movies and they?ll all open up in the viewer window as well.

Somebody help me... I?ve stumped everyone that I know.

Try Menu Bar / Window / Arrange / Standard

When life gives you dilemmas...make dilemmanade.

Hmm. If you've trashed preferences and still can't get a sequence to open the canvas and timeline by double clicking it in the browser, you're kind of in trouble.

Most of the reasons for that would have to do with incorrect or corrupt preferences. Are you sure you didn't just re-instate bad preferences with FCP Attic or FCP Rescue or something?

Sounds crazy, you might be looking at a reinstallation. What's your system? Anyway you can get screenshots?
