Help with the timeline in Vegas 12

I'm sitting here working on a project and my left hand was resting on the keyboard area while my right hand worked the mouse, my usual editing position. My left hand inadvertently bumped a key because all of a sudden my timeline went to some stupid A-B editing mode. What do I need to hit to change it back to straight tracks? I've never seen this in the other versions so I'm learning how to deal with this kind of thing.

I attached a picture of the timeline to help with identifying the issue.

Thanks!

Disregard this thread, I found the answer. It was on the left side of the timeline where the track options are and I had to click it and the tracks went back to normal. Thanks anyway!

This issue is called "Expand track layers" and it is sometimes very usefull (right click on track header).

Ben,
Please help!
The exact thing happened to me. Please let me know what you did exactly to get it back to "normal".

Thank you,

I don't remember exactly what I did! And it happened to me a couple weeks ago and I just closed the program (saving a backup file first), restarted, and it was normal on the restart. It's been a real pain in the butt dealing with this silly edit quirk.
