    Red bracket appeared on screen and the track expanded when I accidentally pressed some unknown keys on the left side of keyboard. Managed to make a new bracket appear on another clip when pressing each key to try and work out what did it, but it removed itself without me understanding how. The initial bracket remains. It means I can only see the clip selected on the preview box.

    Hoping to hear 🙂 Thanks!

    Well, in the Vegas Help Files, above, read up on Expanded Edit Mode and Edge-Trimming, then you will be in the know!

    Yeah, right?

    If anyone is still stuck, right click the track that is affected and click “Expand Track Layers” or press Alt + X

    I fixed this issue by consulting the manual, we both accidentally entered expanded edit mode. this mode can be exited by hitting numpad 5

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/jquery.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapGlobal.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapSlideshow.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapMerging.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapAliasFile.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapUtilities.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapBody.js”>

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”SkinSupport/MadCapHighlighter.js”>

    1. To exit expanded edit mode and return to the previous window layout; perform
      any of the following actions:

      • Choose Edit > Select > Exit Expanded Edit

      • Press 5 on the numeric keypad.

      • Double-click the event edge.

      • Press Esc.

    This feature can now be disabled in Preferences from version 19 and up, so that it can no longer be accidentally activated by double clicking.
