Can't see where I'm dragging clips in timeline

Hey everyone, having a bit of trouble: I can't see where I'm dragging clips in my timeline. I'm still able to move stuff around, but I'm not showed a transparent version of the clip under my mouse to show which track/where exactly it will be when I let go. I think I accidentally hit a hotkey and turned this on/off whilst editing but I don't know what I hit. It looks like the attached picture when I'm dragging. Thank you for any help you can provide 🙂

looks like you should select the arrow ( pointer) tool... instead of replace or insert tool ???

I'm having the same exact issue. Very frustrating.

I never found a solution, and its happened a few times since on different projects. Previously I've just rendered out my project so far and used it for the basis of a new project (as the projects get bigger and more ungainly, this seems to trigger such issues more often, so starting 'fresh' like this usually fixes the problem)

 

From what I can tell it seems to be certain files I'm importing that cause some weird errors - most recently I had this on a project a few days ago. I'd just imported + nested a clip so I tried removing that new clip and it seemed to fix the problem. That's just a workaround sadly, and I don't know if its results can be replicated with your own issues. Apologies!

Is this a one year old topic without solution? This started also for me yesterday with no reason whatsoever. Disabling audio waveforms worked, but it's not a solution!

This has happened to me multiple times. Today it has seemed to be caused by bringing in an edited sequence that just has audio and no video. When I delete the clip the problem goes away.

If I bring the audio clips without being nested the problem doesn't appear.

If I nest the audio clips from within the sequence the proble reappears

This was my issue as well. Removing nested audio seemed to fix everything.

BUMP: I'm also seeing this on a brand new machine. It's annoying to work with when you can't see where you are dragging the clip

I fixed it by clicking on my nested sequence and deleting the audio inside, then I was able to see the clip when dragging. I had an identical problem
