Timeline doesn't accept audio or video files

When I drag an mp3 audio file or an mlt video file in the list to the timeframe area, below the timeframe tools bar, nothing happens. Nothing appears in the timeline and I don’t get any alerts. Just nuttin’.

I am working on a Win10 laptop, 64-bit. I have the latest version of Shotcut as of 5.14.2020.

From the Source tab, drag to Timeline.
Just make sure you have Timeline selected as it might be on Keyframes.

What list? It does not work from the Recent panel. You need to double click it to open the file or project. Then, if a media file you can add it to the timeline.

Hi Hudson555x and Shotcut rep leader. Your counsel seems to have led me to resolution. With thanks. I haven’t figured out some of the next steps but can consult tutorials for that.

You LEGEND! Thanks for that.
