Can't drop clip into timeline, can't move clips in the timeline

v 14.0 is broken! I can't drag/insert clips from my project panel onto the timeline. It just gives me the cirle with a slash icon everytime I try. Both video and audio tracks are active (blue squares highlighting each track). Right-clicking on the clip in the project panel and then selecting "insert" from pop-up menu works, but then I cannot move the clip. It's stuck at on the point where I insert it and I cannot move it at all. This pretty much makes Premiere Pro un-usable. Help!

Are the tracks locked? Look for the padlock icon in the timeline panel header/control block.

I ran into this same problem as well. Hotkeys were not working and the application was severely gimped.

I found a temporary solve, and it may help if you follow these steps.

 

I found that this only happened when opening projects/productions from the Welcome/Home screen. I thought it looked wonky and broken when I saw it after the update. So just close that screen and manually go to File > Open to open your project/production and it SHOULD work. This worked for me. All my hotkeys worked, and I was able to edit normally as I usually do.

Hmm.. this happens only with V14.5 not V14, the new update have a bug with floating panels where you can't drag and drop or move anything. Are you sure your version is 14?

I have V14,0 and It is doing the same problem.  Working normally and suddenly denies moving clips.  I have to close and restart program (several times), until it restarts moving clips.

If 14.0:

 

Delete the Media Cache and Media Cache files:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/faq-how-to-clean-delete-or-trash-media-cache-files/td-p/....

If that doesn't work,try resetting the preferences:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-premiere-pro/td-p/...

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
from here:
https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html

If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.

If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site.

If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.

I was having the same problem. for some reason it was the microphone that is plugged into my soundblaster PCI card. Once I turned that off in PrPro Preferences, I'm good to go. But that is such a wierd bug, hopefully Adobe is looking into it. Thanks Peru Bob for your help!

Thanks, just found my mistake.  Be careful with "A1" at timeline, must be disabled.
