I've got a 14 bar Line that I want to split into two Lines. How do I do that?

Thanks for any help.

on the main page of the web site, there are links to videos that explain a lot of the functionality of the software. Most of them are old and dated, but, somewhat still apply. Also, in RC, upper far right corner is a quick help feature..

This is a video I threw together that explains the structure browser, which is were you would do the actions you are looking for..

I am very appreciative of the video, which is a fine description of the Structure Tool.

BUT...I still don't see any way to take an existing line, with say 14 bars, and split it into two lines, for example, one with the first 8 bars, and the second with the last 6 bars.

I haven't tried this, but would it work to duplicate the line, and then edit the two lines to get the desired result? Delete the last six bars from the first line, and delete the first 8 bars from the second line?

I just tough there should have been some simpler way to just "cut" them into different Lines.

There is no easy way at the moment to split and join lines :(
Create the 'next' line, and selecting a region on the timeline and pressing Cut (Ctrl-X/cmd-X) and pasting it into the next line should work. You can easily remove any unneeded section by timeline selection+pressing delete (when the timeline is in keyboard focus, or from the timeline inspector)
