Logic Pro 9 How do I get back to a normal view?

I clicked somewhere or did something and now all I can see is one comped track in the Arrange window. It doesn't matter how far back I go in the Undo, it still has the same view. How can I see all my tracks?
TIA

I don't understand exactly what has happened.

Are you saying tracks have disappeared from arrange? Did they have regions on them? Normally you would get a warning if you delete a track which has regions, and I don't think there's a way to delete multiple tracks from arrange anyway

Can you post a screenshot please?

Is it possible you accidentally packed things into a folder? What happens if you double click on the "one comped track"?

Or are you literally talking about comp tracks (multiple take recording) where you see all the individual takes when the track is expanded, and only see the composite track when it is collapsed.

I can flatten certain expanded parts, but I need to check and find out if that is permanent. But that is not what I'm talking about. I'm saying all the OTHER tracks have disappeared. Some of them are there because I can hear them. I had muted most of them as I'm trying to make a stem.

Here is a screen shot:

It looks like you have one huge expanded take folder in that screen shot. Collapse it and you will see all the other tracks in the Arrange Window. It looks like you may have inadvertently added non related files into the take folder by accident; but I'm not certain. Something does not look kosher there with the way the regions are combined in that screen shot. Sorry I can't be more specific.

It's hard to see precisely on the screen shot, but you can see that just before bar 57 for example, that there is a little downward pointing triangle at the beginning of the region. Click on it so that the triangle become sideways pointing like the others.

It's hard to see from your screen shot because you are so zoomed out; but the region on top of each of those areas that has regions underneath will have the same sort of downward pointing triangle. Click on them so they become sideways pointing to hide the underlying takes. Once they are all collapsed, your view should return to normal. It will probably help to see them all more clearly if you zoom in a little bit more.

Right, I could do that, but the other tracks still don't show up. You can see there are more tracks there because they can be seen in the mixer window.

Try zooming in and collapsing _ALL_ the take folders by clicking on those triangles; then send another screen shot.

PS: I just noticed from the title bar at the top of the window that you seem to definitely be inside a folder. Not a take folder; but a regular folder. So, once you've collapsed all your take folders, double click in the any of the empty space in the window and the view will go "up" one level and you will see the entire Arrange Window again, rather than just the contents of this folder.

I forgot the screen shot. I found I could reveal the names by scrolling the mixer window. I don't get the names. Where are all my tracks?

See above - you are definitely inside a folder. Double click in an empty space to go back up one level.

Ah. Thank you! That did it
I find myself in these situations sometimes. I've only worked with logic for a couple of years. Still a lot to learn.
