you're right, sorry about this. I coudn't find it via google. But it works, thanks!!
This one does get a little tiresome. People really need to read the directions before using something like Premiere.
I typed "empty timeline" and "timeline empty" in the Forum search box.
I got one result. It was this thread. :-)
Ask whatever you want koos. When you are stuck you are stuck.
Still, one should read the directions for something like Premiere before using it.
474 pages of PDF "directions" and god only knows how many pages of "Online Help" plus a 6 inch stack of Manuals for CS4 (sold separately).
So much to learn...so little time!
I will be ready to sit the 'User Worthiness Test' in about eleven years time.
Meantime ....must edit...
Wonder why we have User to User Forums? (Be no need if we all knew, all there was to know, about everything right from the start)
>Wonder why we have User to User Forums?
For things that aren't in the manuals, of course.
Nice response Jim ...and I would bet that only you would know exactly what isnt in the manual.
We could rename this the 'jim to the rest of us forums'
(I need decent smileys set urgently please - so I can express myself more creatively) Will also need instructions on how to insert them in a post but I am too scared to ask. Must be a "f'n" manual on it "t" "r" somewhere.
Nice try. You must understand that little boys like Harm and his apparent idolizer, Jim, are this forum's "hall monitors" (the dorks in middle and high school everybody made fun of and/or beat the hell out of after school). From the safety of cyberspace, they're finally able to beat their little chests without fear of being ***** slapped. It seems everytime I check out this forum (once a month or less), I see where this Harm boy has attempted to insult someone who has asked a question that he deems unworthy of being asked.

Not exactly accurate, but the imagery of it all is pretty darn humorous...

It is a question worth asking. In today's world, individuals do not get formal education to do many things, and they manage to learn programs and do a lot without even reading manuals. Users stick with PC or with Mac because the user interface is designed to be similar from program to program, and applications are designed to take advantage of that. So the modestly diligent user, tries, then checks help, then googles and/or searches a favorite forum, then asks. The lazier user asks earlier. Some problems are difficult to search correctly even when they have been discussed a lot, in part because the user doesn't perceive the underlying problem.
Some of us accept that this is the way forums work, and when it annoys us we simply move on. It is annoying to have to "listen" to complaints about it so routinely. If it is so easy to search (and many times it certainly is), then respond with "search these forums for ...." and be sure it is a search that works.
Harm, I liked your response at post #1 better than many. You answered the question, encouraged searching, and presented the information about how frequently this has come up as a question.
I'm learning to appreciate your sense of humor more and more each day.
