This has been bugging me for a long time. I frequently am unable to use the Extend menu because it is disabled everywhere (right click, and under the Edit menu. The "E" shortcut doesn't do anything either.
At other times, though, I can extend with no problem.
This happens even though the clip is selected.Are there situations where "Extend" should not be available or is this a bug. If the latter, is there a work-around?
There are times that the Extend Frame option would not be available; primarily it is if you have content to the right of a split and you have not moved that content "down" the timeline (to the right) thus making space. When you try to extend the frame, is there space to the right? Also, are you trying to extend callouts (which would not work), or are they images and videos?
Rather than disabling features, programmers should leave them enabled. If a user tries to use a feature in
an context that in the past would have been disabled, the software should pop-up an explaining
why they can’t use it.
