Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Moving Events and Parts Using the Cursor

Moving Events and Parts Using the Cursor

Snap provides a convenient method for moving parts and events along a grid. Sometimes, though, it's easier to use the cursor to move a part or event. Using the cursor, you can more easily line up an event or part at the beginning or end of another event or part. The cursor can also help you place events or parts when you are synching dialogue and effects to video material. In this example, you will use the cursor to place an audio event at bar 13, beat 1.

To move an audio event using the cursor

1.
Position the cursor where you want to move the audio event by clicking the ruler, or by using the Fast Forward and Rewind buttons, or by manually entering the location on the Transport bar.

2.
Click the event that you want to move.

3.
If you have a two-button mouse, right-click the event to open its contextual menu.

Choose Move to > Cursor (Figure 8.15). One-button mouse users should choose Edit > Move to from the main menu.

The audio part will move to wherever the cursor is located (Figure 8.16).
