Unwanted Metronome click

My audio metronome settings have not changed. They include Click during recording and click during count in. I do not have midi metronome set. I do not use and have disabled Control Room. Suddenly today when I start playback the metronome kicks in. This only happens in one project. I know it’s something simple I did but I cannot find it. Any help appreciated.

Closed the project. Closed Cubase. Restarted Cubase. Opened project. All is well.
