Hey you guys!

I can't drag/resize a clip in my program monitor when I double click it, which used to always work. I was thinking maybe there's a new button I've not heard of or something? The only time double clicking the program monitor to reposition a clip actually works is when I double click (on the program monitor) the shot I want to reposition and then scroll over to another clip, double click it (on the program monitor), then come back to the clip I actually want to reposition and double click it (on the program monitor). I've reinstalled premiere a bunch of times and I've also switched back and forth from using "mercury playback engine gpu acceleration (cuda)" to "mercury playback engine software only" under my project settings and the issue persists no matter what.

It's been a while I've had this problem and I can't stand it anymore so I thought I'd just ask all my fellow editors out there.

Thanks so much, have an awesome day!

Hey,

Just select your clip from the timeline, then click on 'Motion' in the Effect Controls panel,

this will highlight your clip in the Program Monitor where you can drag/resize

I tried this and it doesn't work, the problem persists. It doesn't actually give me the chance to drag/resize a clip until I've done exactly what I said before. Glad other people could find it helpful though.

ADOBE premiere double clicking problem - YouTube

In the video you can see I double click the video and try to drag it around but it only works when i double click another clip and then come back and double click the original clip. The same thing happens when I click "motion" in effect controls.

Thanks.

I am having that issue now, after deleting cache to fix another problem. I am hating Premiere now. I have a deadline tomorrow and i am stuck. One clip won't match up with the sound and i can't click a clip from the timeline to change its size easily.

I'm not sure what you mean by "size" in matching with audio. Do you mean length?

Hello, 

I was having the same issue, whereby I needed to enlarge an image to fit the screen. If you select the clip and head to Effect Controls, underneath there you can head to 'Scale' and increase/decrease the percent. This doesn't help with dragging the clip around though, unfortunately. Perhaps you can adjust that by using the 'Position' feature just above 'Scale'.
