Inserting an audio file

Mac M2 - Ventura 13.2 - Audition CC - multitrack mode.

I'm able to delete a program section with Ripple Delete / Time Selection in All Tracks.

I haven't figured out how to insert a short .wav file into the midst of a program.

When I try this with Multitrack / Insert Files (with primary audio track selected), the result is to overwrite the  existing audio starting at the insert point, rather than insert the desired audio.

Other methods of performing this task aren't clear to me. I do not want to append to the end. I do not want to put the inserted file onto a separate track, unless a merge is the only way.

Multitrack>Insert File is a bit of a blunt instrument for doing this, although it's possible. If I do it, it doesn't delete any of the clip that's already on a track, it cross-fades it, but let's not worry about that at present.

 

What would almost certainly be a better way to do this would be to use File>Import. This will put the file you want to insert into your Files list, so you should then be able to pick it up and place it where you want. If I've understood you correctly, what you need to

This will put the file you want to insert into your Files list, so you should then be able to pick it up and place it where you want. If I've understood you correctly, what you need to do at this point is to put a split in the existing clip on your track, which will turn it into two clips. If you now move the clip on the right along the time line for a suitable distance, you'll have room to insert your new file, and all you have to do is slide everything back together. To do the split, place the cursor where you want to split the original, hightlight the clip and either right-click and select Split, or use Ctrl+K (or whatever the shortcut is on your machine).

The split step solves the problem, I had .wav file in files list as one of my efforts.

Thanks to the user community for this timely assistance.
