In Camtasia 3, I'm trying to ripple delete just one segment on one of the timelines, but it appears to be ripple deleting every time line clip, is there a way just to ripple delete one time line segment?

I don't use ripple delete, so I might get this wrong, but this should work for you: 

Use the Lock icon on the tracks you do NOT want to ripple delete, then ripple away:

Thats a nice workaround Dave ty...just wish there was still a way to shift-drag on an individual clip to ripple delete though, because i usually have 10 or 20 clips stacked on each other, and to lock and unlock (to make changes) can take awhile.

You can select a region on a single click by holding down the Command Key.  Hold down Command, click on a clip and drag out the region you want to select.

Hi,
I just found this thread,  but CMD Drag over a single clip to select just that clip isn't working for me. It keeps selecting all the tracks. I have Camtasia 3.1.6.  The locking of each of the other tracks worked, but I would rather do the CMD Drag command over the one clip.

BTW, I'm a newbie and working through the Lynda.com exercise files which are awesome.

Thanks.  Yes, I realized yesterday, that I wasn't brining the playhead to the appropriate frame prior to attempting to select the clip and drag it.  

Thanks so much for your help....and the video :-)
