10.1-what did I just do?
on Dec 20, 2013 at 6:08:55 pm

Anybody have any idea what I did that suddenly made the horizontal scrolling bar in the timeline disappear? Never seen that before.

I was just using Cmd+ to zoom in and suddenly it disappeared. Restarting FCP (even the machine) hasn't brought it back.

Very slow editing having to go full screen, move the playhead, and then zoom back in to edit...

Do you have a trackpad on that machine? Having one connected to my desktop seemed to make the scroll bars hide for me.

Actually, I did. I pulled the batteries and restarted the machine and they're back.

Well, that's a hell of a thing. FCP X 10.1, or possibly 10.9.1 OSX isn't compatible with an Apple branded Trackpad. Ouch, that's embarrassing...

Thanks James... you've saved me a few hours today

This isn't a bug, it's a feature. If you're using a pointing device with touch scrolling, the OS switches to hiding scroll bars when you're not scrolling, iOS-style. You can tell it to just always show them regardless in the 'General' panel in System Preferences.

Ouch, had a Bill Gates flashback there.

Seriously, thanks for the explanation. I think I'll put the trackpad back on and use it to do the scrolling and the mouse to do the other things...
