1. Ripple won't work. You'll have to drag them all over. Hit A on the keyboard, then Shift click the first clip. This will allow you to select the entire group of clips and drag them over without disturbing the clip's alignment.
2. No, and for good reason. If something was already on a track, it would get overwritten. This is why you have to do it manually.
3. Alt before clicking will perform a temporary unlink. Release the Alt key, and the clips are linked again.
Jim was faster.
2. In previous versions (Pro2?) the audio part went automaticly to the corresponding track.
Select clip and drag the video part to track two.
Don't let go of the clip.
Now press Shift and hold down, still with the clip selected.
Move the mouse to audio track 2. (or whichever track you want it to be on)
You can do this with multiple clips selected and the other way around starting with the audio part selected first.
Regarding ripple delete that is really disappointing. I now have to make 3 moves to achieve what I want, including manually dragging clips to make them align...yikes! I hope Adobe can make some option in the future, where it is more akin to FCP, select + delete and they align at the tail of the previous clip regardless of track.
Thanks Jim and Ann for #2 and #3.
The easy solution for now would be to just not stagger your clips. Keep them all on the same track. Only add clips to higher tracks if you need them to overlap.
Yeah, I will probably butt the clips up against each other and use ALt + the rolling edit tool. However, there are other advantages in staggering your clips by character or angle whether you plan to overlap or not, such as it's easier to read the timeline and It facilitates audio and color correction.
