Position the CTI at the end of beginning of the clip where you want the insert to occur (use PGDN/PGUP for that) and then insert instead of overlay. Turning Snap on may make it a bit easier.
Along with Harm's suggestions, if you find that you HAVE Cut a Clip, you can do two things:
- Leave it alone, as it's really just a set of instructions for how PrPro will handle the data from your source Clip at Export - you have not really Cut your source Clip.
- Delete one of the segments of the Clip, and then click-drag on the Head, or Tail of the other segment, to fill in. Neater, but not really necessary.
If you are dragging, just remember to hold down the Ctrl modifier key, for that Ripple insertion, unless you have already created a gap that matches the Duration of the Clip that you are inserting.
Does it matter whether the Ctl key is pressed before or after you've clicked on or began dragging the clip? Also, are you saying that there is no way to insert a clip without protecting the two adjacent clips from being cut (even though that poses on real problem?)
If you press the CTRL key while dragging, but before dropping it, the icon when moving to the time line panel will change from overlay to insert. With Snap on, it will move easily to the beginning of the clip you want or to the CTI and not insert it in the middle of a clip. Try it and you will see what I mean. It is pretty difficult to explain with words, especially for someone who who does not have English as the native language.
