Unable to view multiple layers


Something strange happened. See below.
I must have pressed a hotkey without knowing it, but now I’m unable to see more than
1 layer. As you see on the right, all the layers are enabled, and I should see both sides.
Any idea of what happens?
→ If I quit without saving, Kicad may restart normally but I would loose some recent modification.
→ If I save and quit, Kicae may restart in the same configuration.

Any hint?

directly below the layers in the appearance panel: unfold the layer display options
There is also a hotkey to cycle between the different display modes (section preferences–>hotkey–>common–>Inactive Layer view mode 3-state)

FWIW, the hotkey default is ‘H’.
