Hi everyone,

I've been having some problems with AE CS6 behaving weirdly at times.
In one of my compositions, the mode dropdown is not visible at all. It looks like this
its weird though, because on any other composition inside the same project it seems fine.

Another thing I've noticed is that masks won't add or subtract (on the problematic comp) but they will on any other comp. Some effects also don't work on the weird comp.

Any suggestions on how to get this to work?

I really appreciate any help, this project is due really soon and I need these functions.

Upload a full screenshot of Timeline. It would help to solve the issue.
