How can I get my audio to move down when I move my video up without making two separate moves?

I have moved to Premiere as a lot of the companies I edit for are now using it. Overall impression is GREAT especially CC vs 5.5 which I started in.


In relation to my question, when I move my video track up a layer my audio stays on track 1 or whereever it started. This is really frustrating as it overwrites the exsiting audio when I move it.


Is there are workaround other than moving the audio down first then moving the clip along, I find this slows me down a lot.

Is this coming out in a new update, or is there a quick solution i missing?


I am about to head into 8 days of fast turnaround multi cam editing so any help would be appreciated.

    The reason why one can move Video and the Audio separately is because...



    What layer the video is on makes a difference.  ie. vIdeo has upper layer dominance.


    Audio does not care what layer it is on.


    It would be far more inconvenient if audio tracks moved up or down when one moved the video.  How would it know where to go?

    Premiere is strong on Track Targetting workflows.


    I have keyboard shortcuts using the numerical keys [video toggle]  and shift- numerical keys[audio toggle]

    There's supposed to be a keyboard modifier that allows this when dragging, but I never could get it to work, and I no longer recall what it was.  (Not even sure if it's still there in CC.)
