Opening, Selecting, and Closing Sequences in the Canvas

Sequences are represented by tabs in the Canvas and Timeline. All controls and commands in the Canvas affect only the sequence in the foreground.

  • Select the sequence in the Browser, then choose View > Sequence in Editor.

  • Control-click the sequence in the Browser, then choose Open Timeline from the shortcut menu.

  • Double-click a sequence in the Browser.

  • Select the sequence in the Browser, then press Return.

If you have more than one sequence open in the Canvas, the tab in front is the active sequence.

  • Click a sequence’s tab to bring it to the front.

When you close the tab of a sequence in the Canvas, its corresponding tab in the Timeline also closes.
