When you drag your second Clip, hold down the Ctrl key, so that the underlying Clips are not rippled.
Thanks I thought there might be a control key solution; should have tried out a few before posting this
Got your PrE 12 yesterday! Looks good, anxious to see how handy it will be for answering some of my many question. But mostly I wanted it to study up on the many features in PrE.
Just a note...when we used to discuss the matter of adding clips to the Timeline without disturbing the status quo, my suggestion was always the Alt key hold down instead of the Ctrl key hold down as you add the new file to the existing Timeline content.
Both seem to work, but Alt key is my preference.
You should find that Premiere Elements 11 and 12 are much the same.
Did you come across my Premiere Elements 12 First Look and Premiere Elements 12 Daily Discoveries threads in my new blog?
