Thanks Stan...I did figure out the arrow eventually but it's amazing how confusing the youtube videos are - maybe because they're recorded using older versions of the software...the icons I see don't match up to what I have downloaded.

Have you edited the zoom recording into the timeline and then made the timeline active and then tried the razor tool?  

 

Please tell us your system specs: OS version, Premiere version, amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card.

I have Uploaded the zoom recording and I can view it in timeline and in project sequence so not sure what you're asking me.

 

I have a March 2022 lenovo thinkpad laptop using windows 11 so I think I have pretty high end capabilities and lots of ram and storage..   I would be disappointed to hear that a computer as new as mine wasn't compatible with the latest version of Adobe premiere

Do you have any experience working with Premiere or any other computer based video editing system?  Hard to judge your level of expertise from your post.  There are several ways to remove sections from the timeline...  but without any sense of your experience, hard for me to know where to start.   Don't want to discourage you, just trying to figure out what you need to do and then we can point you to some tutorials that will help.

Trust me I appreciate the support and the fast turn around in terms of your responses.  I  I used to regularly use Adobe Lightroom for photo editing and I used another product for video editing as a prosumer. First time using Adobe premiere...Bottom line I understand the concept of video and audio editing. I'm just struggling to understand which buttons in Adobe premiere do what

This is all probably complicated by trying to edit a zoom webinar file to delete some sections that we don't want to publish... More sophisticated editing than what zoom offers

ok.  what you need to do is pretty simple.  I'd suggest you do one of the basic tutorials available on youtube or even better one of the comprehensive premiere tutorials available on linkedin learning which although it is not cheap, I think there may be a free trial... 

 

If you've had some experience with other editing software, and you have the "show tool tips" option enabled in premiere preferences: general, you can probably figure this out thru trial and error.   The undo tool is a powerful, and by it's nature computer based editing is "non-destructive" so start playing around with it.

I spent the entire day viewing YouTube tutorials on Adobe premiere both by Adobe and YouTube Experts... Nobody has come close to addressing my issue so this won't not be the resolution to my problem.

you need to do more than "view" the tutorials.  You need to follow them and recreate the actions on your computer.  This is very basic stuff and if you understand the basic tools and interface, you'll be able to do what you need to do.  But you're dealing with a professional piece of software that demands some work to understand.  You might explore Premiere Elements as a simpler option...

You're assuming that I didn't use the tutorials to guide me in making edits vs JUST viewing.  If it made sense to hire someone to train me on how to use premiere then I would just outsource having them make the edits that are needed.  Sorry this isn't helping.

Patrina,

 

Please post a screenshot of what you are trying to do. (You can use a section of the video that does not matter; or just a sample from a tutorial if the material is sensitive.)

 

Ordinarily, the razor tool just works. But, for example, if you lock the track, it will show the red slash/not operate. It is a bit hard to imagine why it is not working for you.

That's my hypothesis also that it's locked but I cannot figure out how to unlock based on past community responses to this issue.

Does the razor tool work if you unlink the audio and video (right click on the file) Do you have track keyframes set for display on the audio track?

Thanks Ann, I was following a video that said click on the red line but clicking on the clip got it done.  Now I cannot turn off the razor to resume editing despite selecing Control K.  Anyone?

Click on the arrow in the Tools panel. Or hit "S" - the letter tooltips appear when you hover over the tools.

 

Conttrol K is the command to razor without using the tool.

 

Congrats on finding the magic!

The "lock" icon shows that the video and audio tracks are not locked. I don't see anything suspicious.

 

I may have missed mention of this: did you try Ctrl + K?

 

I would reset the workspace. I would then reset preferences.
