Hello, I was just editing, I pressed some key and my timeline disappeared! Not the timeline window itself but the actual sequence. To make matters worse I can't find the sequence in my project to reopen it!

Help is much appreciated.

Great to see that this answer was helpful to others. In my case this window is not visible either.

Why is Adobe doing this? Obviously it must be a function - not a bug.
But what is the function of "once the timeline is closed it can't be opened again?"
Very frustrating and pretty new experience provided Adobe.
Must now re-create the entire video with Black Magic Design's - DaVinci Resolve, until I figure out how to avoid loss of work by disappeared timeline window in Premiere Pro.
Hope you have more luck!

The moral to this story for new editors is to learn 2 things:

  • How to open a sequence.
  • How to determine the difference between a sequence and a clip in Icon view.
    • Answer: The icon will have different icons in the lower right corner of the clip.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

sorry @Kevin-Monahan, I dont get it. Not sure if this is sarkasm or if you are serious. Either way: Can't re-open the timeline. And Yes - I am in moderate panic.

Thx

I love you wow. You just saved me. I had auto saves on and everything but my computer updated itself and made it impossible to get my timeline back. Spent hours trying to figure it out so thank you so much.

Jenny - this is a totally fantastic tip.  I thought I had lost 5 days of work and it reappeared - even after I had committed the cardinal sin of closing the programme.  Massive, and I mean massive, relief so thank you!  First time I have ever gone into a community forum and this is the reason why.

WD,

Sorry. You probably accidentally closed the sequence, but you weren't aware you did just that. You can open a sequence anytime in the Project panel. Now you know! 

 

Regard,
Kevin

Is it possible you have multiple project files open at once?
