So...you've combined your various camera tracks into a multicam track and you have made all the switches in camera angles you want.
But then you change your mind about some of the switches and decide at a particular point you want to use camera 3 rather than camera 1 and make the switch at different point.
Can a camera switch (don't know the technical name) be 'undone' in such a case?
If so, how?

Are you using vegas 8?
Are you using a script such as Excalibur?(if yes than yes easily)
More info is needed.

In Vegas 8, each of the 4 cameras (video events) become takes. If you right click (I think) on the video event, then select the "Takes" sub-menu, you be presented with the list of takes, with the currently selected one flagged (forget how exactly; a dot maybe?). Just select one of the other takes, and all will be good.
This also highlights thing that will help -- use clear, unambiguous names for the event streams, whether it be camera-1, camera-2, ..., or stage-left, stage-right, overhead.
You can, of course, also edit the multi-cam track as an other track.
P.S. When you are selecting an alternate shot, you can put Vegas into multi-camera mode (Ctrl-Shift-D) so that you can see the alternate takes, to verify which one it is that you actually want.

Sorry. Yes, I am using v8.
Excalibar or other script? No.

You have a couple of options:
1. Switch that section to the proper take
2. Delete that section and expand the prior section to now cover that section.

Thanks Edward. I had discovered those methods but wondered if you could select the switch somehow and delete it. I take it you can't.
