i googled but didn't find the answer.
when editing a video, imagine we have added two markers and we want to select the exact area from marker1 to marker2 in order to delete that area of movie.
for example we have added a marker called "marker1" in minute 10:00 and wh have added another marker called "marker2" in minute 15:00.
i didn't find any options on menu bar to select this range on video:  from marker1 to marker 2

is the manual method the only way to do this ?
doing this manually is a bit difficult with no exact precision

thanks a lot

To have your playhead line up exactly on a marker make sure you have "Snapping" options on

To make a selection of the timeline between markers you can use keyboard shortcuts

With playhead on one of the markers, use

Shift+Ctrl+[  to  select timeline back to previous marker

Shift+Ctrl+]  to select timeline to next marker
