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.

Have you tried going to "window" "Workspaces" "Reset to saved layout"?

If the sequence isn't in the Project panel, then you must have deleted it.  Try a CTL-Z and whatever else you do, don't close the project with it gone.

I also loose totally the timeline when I save the project on Premiere cc 2018

I even attempted to export it as XML (which now is only FINALCUT XML)

As I reopen it the whole editing appears a green continue line and the clips cant be edited or adjusted.

This is really bothersome and it did not happen with the previous versions.

It happens now as I updated to ElCapitan and version 2018

Is it a bug or what?

You just need to open the sequence.  Double-click on it from the bin.

And do read the manual.  What you're looking at with the XML is a nested sequence.

I do what you suggest but the timeline is just not there

I sent the project to a friend with CC2018 on Mac and he is able to see it

We use the same system ELCAPITAN and the same version is there something in the preferences I should set up?

Googling around I learned this seems to be a bug when the user SAVE AS but I never did it.

I also followed another suggestion; open the app pressing either option (ALT) or Shift Option to reset the preferences to the original state

Yet even this did nothing

You suggest to read the Manual, but where in the manual they suggest what to do when the timeline disappears?

This never ever happened in the previous version. Usually if an upgrade or update gives such an important issue it's called a bug.

I am loosing hours of work and the trust of the people who give me work

I have no external plug ins and my system is totally clean as from Apple original ...

I wonder if there is something I should do before dropping Premiere for good

Adobe is a serious company and this is unacceptble and I am certainly not the only one with this problem

Can you post a screen shot of the Project panel with the missing timeline?

Have you searched the Project Panel for it using the search bar?

I assume you know how to open a sequence from the project panel?

Have you tried auto save or a backup.

I have seen this problem on multiple forums. This is not because we don't know how to open a sequence!

I read throught the comments and I think I may have to restart my entire sequence. I don't know why/ how this happened I don't want it to happen again but I don't know how to prevent it from happening. 

 

Ive tried all the suggestions and I cant seem to locate my sequence. Thats hours of work down the drain, timelines pushed back and I don't know how to prevent this from happening again. These complaints happened two years ago, why is this still happening. I cant be the only only. PLEASE HELP!
