The Rectangle Selection tool, introduced in version 23.11.29, allows you to use your mouse to select a single clip or a group of clips in the Timeline.
The tool is enabled by default.
To disable or enable it, go to Settings > Timeline
(click anywhere on the image to play the animated GIF)
- When the tool is disabled, press and hold the Shift key to enable it temporarily
- When the tool is enabled, press and hold the Shift key to disable it temporarily
Looks interesting. But I’m still confused! What happens after I select a clip or group of clips? Why do I want to select a clip or group of clips?
There are a few supported actions for multiple selection and the forthcoming group feature:
- Move to another place in the Timeline
- Ripple Delete
- Split (coming in version 24.01)
