I've been trying to learn more of AE, and have done lots of tutorials (several at the Cow, so I thank you for that!), and I am now trying to decipher a template that I have. In it, images and text (within a precomp) are being controlled by a blue box that I simple canNOT find anywhere in the project. This box is responsible for zooming out individual precomps...and I just want to speed up the ins and outs. Here's a screen shot of said blue box. Also, there is no camera in the main comp. I apologize if this is too vague. Thanks!

There is "Shy" button to hide layers that you aren't currently using. You pick the layers you want to shy and then toggle the master shy switch, it's the one that has a little face and nose peeking over a wall. So check to see if that's pressed and if it is toggle it to the up state.
