cmd + drag (or cmd + opt + drag) to swap clips is not working

When I do cmd + drag or cmd + opt + drag I get some other function (see image below), but not clip swap.

 

I'm using the latest Premiere Pro on a 2020 M1 Mac.

Please use the actual version # from HELP/About... I'm on 24.5 and it's working here in Windows 11. Your video is hard to follow as you posted an icon which means move it to the left, but with ctrl+alt hold the mouse over the edit point at the head or tail of the clip and it shows the correct swap icon.

24.5.0 Build 57

The image is the icon that appears when I press cmd and start dragging. The video shows what happens when I press cmd and drag or if I press cmd + opt and drag. The point is the two clips don't get swapped.

It's not really that big a deal, but if this shortcut/key combo doesn't work, it makes me wonder what else might not be working.

<<it makes me wonder what else might not be working.>> Wow, you're quite a detective!

Keep finding those tutorials and see what other things might not be working.

You've got to hold down both, ctrl+alt and keep them down while you release (drop) the clip to the swap location.

What you are seeing in your screenrecording is correct, clips dont get swapped.

You insert the clip and the rest of the timeline shifts to the right or left.

 

For windows its ctrl+alt.

In the tutorial I'm using and in youtube videos explaining it the two clips are supposed to swap places, leaving the rest of the timeline unaffected.

Well, you could call it swapping if you insert next to the adjacent clip.

In reality, it's not swapping but inserting and moving the adjacent clips.  In case of the tutorial its just one clip that gets moved to the right and appears like swapping.

The icon used is called re-arange.

Screenshot from the tutorial it shows the insert icon as the second one the re-arange icon

So your image in your original post is the insert icon and not the re-arange icon by holding down ctrl+alt.

 

Beware there are a lot of tutorials on the net that are not quite accurate.

I understand, and you don't actually have to hold down both opt and cmd (on Mac). cmd + drag swaps everything, not just the video and audio. cmd + opt + drag only swaps the video and audio. Little arrows appear to indicate what exactly is getting swapped.

This all works just fine on my MacBook Air...

In short: Premiere does not have a swap feature.

Try and swap clip 1 with clip nr 10 in the timeline: does not work.
