    In a stupid move, I close the Timeline and Canvas window and now they won't show up. They're grayed out at the Window tab and pressing command+2 or command+3 doesn't call them back. Going to Arrange and trying any of the window layouts doesn't solve the problem

    You may have to delete your preferences. You can google search it. Just type in final cut delete preferences. Hope it helps.

    I figured out a workaround. Start a new project and just drag everything from the old project's Browser to the new Browser. Seems like this is a bug if there's no easy way to get the windows back.

    In the Browser window, double-click a Sequence to re-open the Timeline and Canvas window.

    Exactly, you would have closed the sequence. So opening it again will let you access those windows.

    it works

    the exact thing happened to me
    what you have to do is:
    in the browser it will say 'sequence' just double click on it and the canvas and timeline will pop up

    you can also just go to window layout > default and everything will come back.

    Wow, lukeynoodle ... that's a long echo. You've repeated the same thing I said 6 months ago in this thread.
