I've never seen that and have no idea how to reproduce.

Could you make a project backup, metadata only, no media, zip and post it, please?

hi Hugly,

I've made a short video showing the issue. Would this help in place of the metadata?

There's certainly something odd going on with the vertical scrollbar for all the bins that appear empty - note that you're only seeing the very top part of the bin - presumably your items are visible lower down?

You can remedy this by either switching to 'table' view (as you were you using in fixed mode) or by right-clicking the bin and enabling Automatic Positioning.

That worked! 'automatic positioning' brought all the clips back up to the top. They were always there, just way down where they weren't visible.

Thank you Great White!

I'm still wondering why it looks different in Flexible and Fixed layout if "Automatic positioning" is disabled?

Do you know the steps in Fixed layout to reproduce what your video shows in Flexible?

By the way, referring to your unanswered second question, the fasted way to populate a bin is to select objects, to click on the "+" symbol next to "Bins" and to rename the newly created bin. Alternatively, you can drag and drop a selection of objects from any bin onto the name of an existing bin in the bin list to move or, with Ctrl-key pressed, to copy the selection. A tool tip next to the mouse pointer shows the action (move/copy). Please note: Drag and drop from main filters, e.g. "Clips", "Sequences", is always a copy, no matter what the tool tip shows - you can't move objects out of main filters, only out of bins.

or by right-clicking the bin and enabling Automatic Positioning.
Since Auto positioning can be a distraction from one's preferred bin clip order if left enabled - the Tidy command should do the same thing once only.
