I'm a longtime user of Cool Edit Pro and then Adobe Audition for Windows. I'm thrilled that Adobe Audition for Mac Beta has finally been released. In putting it through a test of editing a track i'm finding that the Right Click to highlight seems cumbersome. With an Apple Mouse right click has always been a problem so like many I switched to a microsoft mouse and even utilize the Apple Magic trackpad. Testing with the Microsoft mouse I noticed that when right clicking, instead of being ready to perform the drag to highlight a portion of the track, it brings up a drop down of menu choices. You then have to revert to holding down the shift key on the keyboard. Two hands instead of one action.
Is there an adjustment I should make in the settings? This action makes for better workflow and speed when editing.
Update....So it's just left click drag to highlight! Typical mistake I can see being made is losing your highlighted section of the track that you want to highlight (which happened because i had to drag the separate playhead to the beginning of the highlighted track to play). A bit awkward. I'll adjust I guess (unless the Beta is tweaked :-))
That's the normal behaviour in Cool Edit Pro/Audition.
The functionality you're describing is 'Extend Selection' - you can find the setting under 'Preferences/General/Editor Panel Context Clicking'.
It's one of the best features workflow wise
I made the adjustment. It works! Thanks!
