I'm not sure what I did but now when I try to mute a track it mutes everything or if I try to reduce the transparency level on one track they all move basically for everything I do on one track it does it for all the tracks, what did I do and how do I correct it?
No that wasn't it, it doesn't matter what I try it performs the same operation on each track, for instance I opened a text for each track and when I try to make one transparent by dragging the line down on the track (not sure what it is technically called) it does it to the other tracks as well. I have no idea what I clicked on but it is driving me nuts
Are you sure you don't have multiple tracks selected? If you click on one track header (where all the controls are located to the left of the track) it should select that one track header and simultaneously un-select all the other tracks.
