Try some google searches for "Premier Elements Ripple Edit". One video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuWcGH0yDbs
There are choices to turn it on and off. There are options using the Alt or Ctrl keys that change what happens.
You may have to experiment a bit to get working the way you want.
Here's your original discussion.
Then as now I wonder why you need something other than the default ripple function. It does exactly what you want without the complications of grouping.
As I said then, when you have a clip select, the Split tool will split only that tool. When you don't have a clip selected on your timeline, all clips on all tracks will be split at that point.
The lack of this feature is mind boggling. Steve Grisetti I do not understand how default ripple helps. Sorry if this reply comes across a little snooty -- !!! my bad!! -- but it's just I feel that what the OP was talking about hasn't been addressed or read carefully.
I feel I have the same issue as the OP. I have one video track and four synced audio tracks. I want to cut it up. I don't want to lose the sync. Now... I don't want to ripple, I don't want to make a final edit, I just want to cut it up so I keep the parts I want and cut out the parts I don't. Default ripple is not applicable.
I want to be able to form a cut, and then delete everything out, and move on. But in Premiere, I can't. GROUPing does not do it -- it doesn't allow me to cut out parts in the middle. RIPPLE does not do it -- that does not handle being able to cut all the tracks at one place.
And all the while, there's no ability to LINK. I can link ONE audio track to the video, but any more selected, and Link command doesn't show up.
I am searching to see if I am missing something obvious but as yet have not found a solution... the simple solution is to be able to LINK multiple audio to one (or more) video tracks. I can nest and I can group but I don't want to do that. I just want to link multiple clips/tracks of audio. I am flabbergasted that this isn't a feature. Whether or not we have several tracks in sync like the OP was talking about, or all of them.

You cannot nest in Elements.
Is it Elements that you are using or Pr Pro?
You are on the Elements forum now.
You're right, this is the wrong forum.
Well it's all kind of related, granted I didn't check the forum but i got here after a google search in which i put in quotation marks "Adobe Premiere CC". Yet it takes me to Elements. So there's a deficiency of the internet at large. And Premiere Elements / Premiere CC... why does Adobe bother having two separate products? Seems a waste of resources, resources that could be better spent just making the overall product better.
So much confusion in the world sown by lack of simplicity. First thing they taught us in CompSci 101. "Keep it simple, stupid." Well we can dream.
Thank you for the heads up, tho.
I also just wish to add that it is a miracle of the modern age that we can cut distribution level movies on machines we can carry in a backpack. Don't mean to get too complain-y.
But things can be better.
Alrite, done... peace to you all, hope you solve the problem
