Cut only one track without effecting the others

I have just updated to the newest version and now encounter a problem: I want to cut out only from one track, without effecting the others. Before, this was possible by selecting the track that I wanted to cut out from. Now, even when selecting a specific track, still all tracks are cut out for the selected time frame. Please advise on how to cut out only from one single track. Thank you!

Hi Anna, I would recommend you lock the tracks you do not wish the cut to affect. To do this, select the padlock icon at the beginning of the track. I hope this helps.

that will work.
Alternatively, you could hold down the "command" key and then drag out a selection JUST on the clip you want to cut a section out of.

Your last option is to just split it at the start and end of what you want to delete, giving you a clip in the middle you can select and delete.
