Playhead, select and zoom in sync on multiple files

Can someone please help me out because I'm losing my mind..


When I'm editing multiple audio files in Adobe Audition, the playhead moves in sync. So: when I edit something at 20 seconds in file 1, suddenly my playhead is at 20 seconds as well in file 2. But also when I zoom in on file 1, file 2 is suddenly zoomed in as well. And when I select the first 20 seconds in file 1, the first 20 seconds are selected in file 2 as well. I do not want these features to sync, I want them to work independently. Right now I'm constantly trying to find the right part I was working on and it costs me so much time.


I've been using Audition for years now and never had this issue before. I'm working on the latest version and the only difference I can think of is I switched from a windows laptop to macbook air recently. Can someone please tell me how to fix this issue?
