I opened version 22.5 (new to me after several years) on an overseas trip. I created a new project and imported some media. At some point in the set up process, my timeline was auddenly replaced by a giant audio meter (see attached photo).
So I deleted the project and tried to create a new one, but the problem persists: where the timeline is supposed to be, I have a giant audio meter. If I try to drag a video clip into that timeline panel nothing happens. If I play a clip from another panel, my former timeline shows an audio meter of the clip that is playing.
