My current project requires that I move parts of multiple tracks containg multiple clips from one project to another. I thought the most efficient way to accomplish this would be to "lasso" (ALT + mouse drag per the Manual) and then copy the needed material and paste it into the new project. That way, at least I thought, the tracks could be pasted into the new project and keep their appropriate timing/positions relative to one another.
However, when attempting to "lasso" the partial tracks/clips, the shaded rectangle just disappears when I release the mouse or the ALT key. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this?
Thanks for the response. All of the clips I'm trying to select are recorded audio clips -- not folder clips. I think I may have misread the Manual on this point and CTRL + ALT + Mouse Drag is required for this operation, not just ALT + Mouse. I'm going to try some more editing tonight and I'll re-post if I make any progress.
