This happen to me a few weeks ago and this is how I fixed it.
Try this... Make a new user account on your Mac. If the canvas shows in Motion using the new user account do this:
1) Go to the Finder Menu, Go...
2) Hold down the Option key...
3) Go... Library....
4) Application Support... Motion... Layouts... Modified... Delete Default.ModuleLayout and delete Motion.saved.moduleLayout files.
Restart Motion and see if that works for you.iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1), 27" 3.4GHz Quad-Core i7-SSD-2 GB HD

Don't know how you figured this one out but I'm very greatful that you did and posted your solution. I'll be linking your solution to my other posts regarding this issue.
Thanks so much David!

Please note this is a reproducible bug. If you have a two monitor setup, and unplug a monitor (thunderbolt) in my case without quitting notion first, the canvas will not show up the next time you open motion. Just a FYI (I'm on a MacBook Pro)

Hi I am reasonably new to mac but getting there. I have been using Motion5 for a few months and have experienced this issue to the point now where I can not fix it. I have read various post and all mention accessing the motion 5 folder within appication support folder.
There is no Motion folder within the Application Support folder. I cant seem to find an option to show hidden files....
The paths I have tried look at bit like this:
Mac HD>users>MYNAME> Nothing here to help.....
Mac HD>Library> No Motion folder....
Mac HD>Library>Application Support> No Motion folder....
Please help, Keep it simple for me.
Im using OSX version 10.8.2

So unbelievably appreciative of this... like the OP, I'd gone through every conceivable option to get the default layout back and was about to investigate reinstalling. Thank you David!

Hi, just to keep this thread live, I have had motion 5 on my macbook pro since i got it a year and half ago, had the perfect dual monitor setup going. . . . came to use it this afternoon and couldnt get my canvas to show, same issue as described above. Thanks for the resolve, these kind of issues seem to appear more and more often these days with apple products, id like to know what just suddenly triggers these little bugs.
