We're trying to copy a clip and paste it right above the first one, but it REALLY wants to go to track 1 every time. We looked it up in help and here's what it says:
"Adobe® Premiere® Elements 8 pastes clips to the Video 1 or Audio 1 track at the location of the current-time indicator. However, you can avoid this action by manually copying clips on multiple tracks."
Then, of course, there is zero explanation of how to 'manually' copy and paste the clips so they go where you want them to.
Anyone know how this is done? Holding in Alt doesn't seem to work, either...
Select the clip on the timeline. Hold down the [Ctrl] key and with your mouse drag it onto the video track you want it in.
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
In previous versions of the program, the paste always went to Video 1.
In Premiere Elements 8, your clip will be pasted to whatever track you copied the original file from.
