Hello,


I can't move objects on more tracks at the same time.
I select all objects on all tracks, and when I want to move them, only one track moves.
I created a short, unlisted video, to demonstrate it: https://youtu.be/Do7__k86jTo
Thank you for your help!

Select media by left clicking and dragging your cursor across the media to select it.
A blue box will appear as you drag out the selection.



Once highlighted, you can drag the group with the cursor.

Hi Joe,

Thank you very much, this works!

But then it seems that "Select to the end of the media" has a bug, doesn't it?
Have you seen the video I linked above?

I don't use "Select To End Of Media"
It utilizes the Timeline Indicators "Green and Red" }Selection Handles{
That selection method provides a number of options.
Right clicking inside the blue area will bring up a menu.



However, this will not select and highlight media on the timeline.Which is required to drag media around.
Left clicking media will highlight it.Thats why you could move that clip in the blue area, but only that one.

I ran into some inconsistencys with  "Select To End Of Media"
In one project it seems to work correctly. Selecting all the way to the end.

 

In this project it selects smaller portions. Producing different results based on playhead placement.Heres one example.



Moving the playhead yields this.



In this project, the selection stops at the end of grouped media?



I don't know why this is occurring?
I can only assume its a bug.

I contacted support, the above behaviour I posted is as expected. "Not a Bug"

If theses a split in the media "Edit Point" The selection will stop at the split.
The person I spoke with acknowledged the inconsistent nature of the selection process. While it can be confusing as a whole. It's simply not a bug.

Regards,Joe
