Continuous Scrolling When Selecting Audio?

Post by DWP »

When I'm selecting a portion of a track, I want to be able to click and drag/scroll right to highlight more than just the portion of it that appears in my window, so that I can grab and delete long passages without having to stop, grab the slider bar at the bottom to advance the track and then select only the chunk that appears in the window, and then repeat.

I have "Display follows playback" and "Continuous scrolling" checked in my Preferences, but I'm still not able to scroll while selecting. I could swear I used to be able to! What am I missing?

That should work fine (and it does for me)... Are you trying to do this while playing back? In that case, "Display follows playback" would keep on snapping the display onto the current playback position, which would of course interfere with attempts to move the displayed area around.

Nope, just trying to do it while playback is stopped. Do I need to download an updated version of the software to make this work for me? I'm on Version 2.8.5. Maybe that's why it stopped working?

2.8.5 is the current version. How *exactly* are you going about things? Would it be possible to send a link to a screencast?

I can't get my photo-sharing site to play the screencast for some reason, so here's a direct link to the file: https://assets.disneytravelbabble.com/s ... ecting.mov

Thanks for the screencast! The scrolling only happens when the pointer is outside the bounds of the current window. Since you are working in full-screen mode, this never happens. You are right though that this isn't expected behaviour, I'll try to fix this ASAP.
