Audio missing on some clips on the timeline

I must have done something with my timeline and at some point I noticed that a chunk of clips in the timeline had no sound anymore (it was there before). If I double clicked on the video to bring up the clip on the source monitor, it would show as with no audio (sound icon greyed out). But the original file opened from the bin is fine. 

 

Eventually I found a YT video offering a "solution": position the cursor on the clip I want to recover, select the clip on the timeline, select Sequence-Match Frame. At that point the clip opens in the source monitor and the sound is there as well. I can then drag the sound back where it was. Only downside now all those clips are "unlinked". 

 

I would like to know what I did to create this issue as this is not the first time I noticed that. 

 

Any help appreciated!

 

Thank you!

Oh, I think I know what I did. 

 

I sometimes press ";" instead of "L". If I have an IN and OUT set, that removes the soundtrack - at least I've just tried and that is what happened. 

 

In that case

1. Is there a way to avoid that (besides trying NOT to press random buttons on my keyboard!)

2. Is there a quick way to undo that if it happens again

 

Thank you!

That is normal behavior.

We cannot reproduce your workflow without knowing what you did.

If it happens again see if you can trace it back in the history. (up to 99)

I think nr 1 applies best. 😉

Undo via History, this only works when project has not been closed and opened again. Or find an auto save.

 

If it's any consolation: this happened to me once or twice too.
