The preview panel in video editing is taking up the whole area of blender. I don't know how to get out of it. There are no buttons or menus anywhere.

I tried:

Alt-F10     - Toggles maximize/restore window.
Ctrl-Up     - Nothing
Ctrl-Down   - Nothing
Shift-Space - Nothing
Alt-F11     - Toggles real full-screen (no window)/window
  • $\begingroup$ In the video sequence editor I clicked on View (of the preview pane) and clicked Toggle Fullscreen Area Alt-F10. If I press Alt-F10 it just maximizes the window, but if I click on the Toggle it takes over the whole work-space. $\endgroup$ – Omicron Feb 10 '17 at 17:20
  • $\begingroup$ Did you restart? In all files you open? You can create a new file and append everything. Do your keyboard keys register correct? Can you split the window? $\endgroup$ – Leander Feb 10 '17 at 17:55
  • $\begingroup$ could it be that you have joined all panels into one? If so, you could split back the only one into multiple, using the little corner handles, see: docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/interface/window_system/… If nothing works, save the file (ctrl-s or ctrl-w). then close blender completely, reopen it and load the saved file without the "load ui" flag... $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Feb 10 '17 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ I restarted nothing changed. Only this file is saved like this. I appended everything in a new file but I don't have what I made. It was just video editing. No 3d models. I can't split the window. There are no handles in the corners. Loading the file with the "load ui" unchecked worked :D $\endgroup$ – Omicron Feb 10 '17 at 18:49

Ctrl-s or Ctrl-w to save current progress.

Open the file by un-checking the Load UI parameter.
