Extending a frame Camtasia version 8.6

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Ability to extend frame by dragging

When I first started using CS years ago, extending a frame resulted in all the assets to the right being shuffled along and kept in sync with the video, it was great!

The current version does not do this and the only way I have found to compensate is group select the assets and manually shift them. I generally have so many that the response is far from smooth and it’s very difficult to get them in the correct spot. I’ve been doing this for ages and still bugs me.

Is there a better method?

I have tried group selecting all assets including the video and adding this to the library, then deleting them from the timeline, extending the video then putting the saved assets back where they belong. This works quite well but it adds a huge asset to the library and when I subsequently try and deleted the system complains that the asset is being used and can’t be deleted. Why is this  When the saved asset has done its job and is no longer required? Is there a way of deleting this saved asset from the library?

Many thanks in advance

What I normally do in this situation is to move the asset up to a layer with nothing else on it.

Then I apply the "extend frame" to it. Since I moved the asset to its own layer, nothing to the right gets shifted.

I then bring the asset back down to its original layer and adjust the footage to the right accordingly.

This is the less time consuming method that has worked for me.
