Select next clip in track without having a clip already selected?

Hey all! I noticed there is a an option to select the next clip in your selected track in Audition’s multitrack view (Edit > Select > Next Clip in Selected Track). However, I noticed this only works if you already have a clip selected. If I don't have any clips selected, nothing seems to happen when I try this command.

 

My end goal is to be able to make a cut in a clip, and then select the next clip to delete it without having to move my cursor (after adding some keyboard shortcuts).

 

Am I doing something wrong here? Or is there just no functionality to select the next clip in a track, without already having a clip selected?

If you have no clip selected, how does Audition know which is the "Next Clip in Selected Track"?

Hmm good question. I guess I figured that if the track was selected, the position of the playhead would be enough for Audition to figure out what the next clip was. Since it knows how to “Select Clips to End of Track” without having to select a specific clip.

If I remove a section from a clip by splitting it, highlighting the part to remove and hitting Delete, then that leaves the cursor between the clip before and the next clip on the active track. At that point, hitting the period (full stop) key cycles between highlighting the clip before and the clip after - no cursor moving at all. Doesn't this work for you?

This is what happens for me:

If I split a clip, then highlight it and delete it, then hit "." nothing happens.

If I split a clip, then highlight it, then hit "." repeatedly, it will select the next following clip every time I hit the "." key

 

So it still seems to only select the next clip when I currently have a clip highlighted already.

Well I don't know what you are doing, but that is definitely not what happens here. If you split a clip and delete the split section, leaving the cursor in the gap - with no clip highlighted - then using the "." key will cycle and select between the clips either side of it. No previously highlighted clip required for this at all.

Well thank you for your help - if that's what is what is supposed to happen then I will try to see if I am doing something wrong on my end. Maybe I have some weird keyboard shortcuts set up or something. Thanks 🙂
