I saw an older post where someone asked this question but I didnt quite understand how to do this . There used to be a feature when before inserting audio files into your session in adobe , you can preview the file before doing so. Is this still available on the newer versions of adobe and if so... HOW if you could , can you explain to me as if I was a 3 year old. Thank you. I really miss this feature and would love to use it again.
Thank you so much!

Well, most three-year olds like pictures!
If you want it in words, it's at the bottom of the Files menu - the button on the right. It's never gone away, and has always been there. You don't have to turn it on or anything - just make sure that the files menu is visible (Window>Files) and it's at the bottom.
Hi. Thanks for the picture, it did make it easier. I am with the original poster though. This still doesn't quite do what they (and I) are needing. I am attaching a pick from AA 1.5 and from the latest version to show the exact thing that we are missing. It's when you use the OPEN FILE. Thanks for any help. If I'm missing something, I apologize for your need to repeat yourself 🙂
Ahh... The one difference between the much older versions and the present one is that you can't preview a file without it being available in the Files panel. If I recall correctly, this altered when the entire audio engine was rewritten to be ASIO-based. To preview audio the way it used to do (which used the Windows audio player) would involve creating a complete stand-alone ASIO player. Unfortunately you can't use both systems at the same time, so it was decided that regrettably, the previous Previewing system had to go.
Once a file's opened and in the Files panel, Audition's normal replay facilities are available - but not if it isn't, I'm afraid.
Thank you. I appreciate that explanation. 🙂
