There is no actual manual for the program -- which is why I wrote my books.
But I'm not sure it would help you in this case.
Where is the WAV file located? Is it on your computer's hard drive?
You certainly shouldn't use the Video Importer to get the WAV file -- assuming it's not coming from an external device like a camcorder or a smartphone or iPad or something similar.
But if you are having problems, try just opening Windows Explorer (or Finder on a Mac) locating the file and then just dragging the WAV file from Windows Explorer into your Media panel. It should drop right in.
Hi Steve, thank you. I had tried dragging the file from Windows Explorer into the list view, and when that didn't work, I gave up. But following your helpful advice I switched to the icon view in the media panel and managed to drag .wav files straight in there! Thank you. Actually, further experimentation revealed that I could import .wav files into the organizer, and send them to the edit from there. This was a bit clumsy because the files were loaded by default straight into the timeline, and I needed to clear them and do some trimming in the preview pane before inserting the trimmed sequences.Yes, the .wav files were on the hard drive, and no, I won't attempt to find them again using the "video importer". So, the solution turned out to be as easy as in previous versions of the program.
Gosh I miss the old-fashioned offline help, but will try to get used to the more hit-and-miss searching for help and viewing of tutorials online until I have reviewed your books and decide whether I want to buy the one for PE10 or splash out and buy the one with Photoshop guidance as well. I gather that they are .pdf files that can be downloaded. Is this so? You are filling a niche, Steve, helping here and writing these books - and you are quick to respond, thanks - Phil
