Hi everyone


Very stuck with this, so will appreciate any help!

One of my audio channels has apparently been locked for editing, I cannot cut it, or drag or move or do anything with any elements

If I right click on a bit of audio nothing happens, its like its been locked down totally, but the channel itself is not locked

I have attached a video of what is happening

If anyone can tell me what I have done wrong i would be rather happy

Thanks!

If the audio is linked to the video track, it can't be cut separately. Right-click on the audio, and if the 'Unlink' option is available, click it. Then you should be able to cut away.
