It's been awhile since I have posted any Mac issues, so here goes:

I have a clip that I imported into Final Cut Express (FCE), which went OK. I then divided it up into subclips, and went to bed. Now that I have opened FCE again, my Viewer is gone (though the Viewer slug is there), and double-clicking on any of my subclips in the Browser takes my directly to a tab in the Timeline, instead of the Viewer.

I have never seen this happen before, and I have played around with the settings, but could not find anything that will turn this maddening behavior off though I do get the feeling that this is nothing more that something being turned on (or off) that shouldn't be.

That being said, if there's a way to reset FCE to its default settings, which I suspect would solve the problem, I would appreciate knowing it.

If I wasn't clear before, I am trying to get back to the place were double-clicking on a subclip in the Browser takes me not to an individual tab in the Timeline, but a Viewer window. Then, if I want to move the clip to the Timeline, then I would do so, and have the clip in the Timeline show in my Browser window.

All help is, of course, appreciated.
