did i uncheck a magic box somewhere??? this morning i'm starting a new project and both folders of clips (a few hundred) are showing up on the timeline with video unlinked from audio. the bar thingies are connected on the far right of the timeline. visually, they are "linked" (the clip name is underlined on the timeline), and doing "command-L" toggles the underline on and off, but doesn't actually link them...
thanks for helping out a bonehead!
