Final Cut Pro Cannot Open Timeline or Canvas Windows?

If your "FCP Timeline and Canvas Windows are gone and you go to Window in the top menu and the two options for having them displayed are greyed out, then some how, you have either deleted your sequence or closed it. You need a sequence in the browser in order to have a Timeline or Canvas Window. If you have accidentally closed the sequence, simply go to File > Open Recent and reopen the sequence and your Timeline and Canvas will reappear. If you have deleted the file, you will need to start a new project.

If you do not want to create new project, but you don't have a sequence to double click on, you can create a new sequence in your Browser window by (Control Clicking or Right Clicking) within the grey area underneath the Name column and select 'new sequence'. Double Click on your sequence, and the Canvas-Timeline will re-appear.
