Which version of the program are you using on what operating system?
If your video with the gap in it on Video 1/Audio 1? The Delete and Close Gap feature in some versions of the program only works on Video 1/Audio 1.
Is there any video on any track other than your Video 1 and music tracks?
Elements 13 on Windows 10
My timeline images and video is on Video 1 while the sound/music is on Soundtrack timeline
Can you Delete and Close Gap if you remove the soundtrack?
The cap is in my music not my image. I added several images and now I have a cap or split in my music
That's correct. You can not delete and fill gap in the music if there are no gaps in your Audio 1/Video 1 track.
Drag to lasso the video on Video 1 to the right of your music and drag all of this video to the right. Then double-click in the gap in Video 1 and select Delete and Close Gap.
As I said, in current versions of the program, the "ripple" effect only affects the media on Video 1/Audio 1.
In the future, you can avoid splitting the music as you add video or photos by holding down the Ctrl key (the Cmd key on a Mac) as you add your video or photos to your timeline so that you're overriding the ripple effect.
Ctrl key, good to info thanks.
I tried to drag and its seem to work partly, it would stop short of the music. Thank goodness for undo....
