Default Zoom tool Disappeared??

Dear DUC

running pro tools 8.0.1 For some reason my zoom tool window has vanished from the session I am working on. I have the magnifying glass Icon still showing in that group of options but the display to the left where you stretch the audio out horizontally has vanished and I cannot seem to recover it. If I open a brand new session it is also gone- but if I open older sessions on the current song or different songs it is there. HELP!! Can't live without it. Can someone tell me how to get this feature turned back on in my edit window. thanks!

No clue. All bets are off when running a version that old, on an OS that new. IOW, you simply can't expect it to work properly. You're in no man's land.

Hang on. If you're on 10.5 Leopard, then LE 8 shouldn't be a problem at all. I would definitely be sure to update to 10.5.8 and take Pro Tools to 8.0.5. Some of the previous versions of 8 had some serious bugs, one being the disappearing take bug having to do with file ID changes.

Thanks Jimmy I will have to check this out. for everyone else this ver. of OS and PT has been running fine for years. No issues. I have the Zoom in other sessions for other songs. Even older session files of the song I'm working on now. Just not the the current session of the current song I'm working on. Or I f I open up a brand new blank session it is missing as well. I have some ideas to work around this if needed. Just thinking maybe someone might have known if there was a tab or setting somewhere that I might have accidentally hit to shut the thing off. I've been through all the pull down windows and don't see anything. And BTW. I am running OS 10.5 on a Hackentosh which again has been golden since 09
