  1. Is your track locked? no then...
  2. Reset your preferences:

1. Exit the application

2. Press and hold Alt (Windows) or Option (macOS) as you start Premiere. Release the Alt keys or Option key when the splash screen appears.

3. To restore default preference settings and plug-in cache at the same time, hold down Shift-Alt (Windows) or Shift-Option (Mac OS) while the application is starting. Release the Shift-Alt keys or Shift-Option key when the splash screen appears.

Is quitting and restarting seriously the only way to get the clips to move?

My problem is that the clips will move — but I lose the ability to see the actual clip slide along the timeline.

Hi,

I have the same problem!

I've tried Katie's 3 steps but still can't move clips in the timeline.

Premiere was working fine yesterday..

Does anyone know anything else I should try?

I'm on a new Mac and using Premiere 11.0 (2017.1.2)

Thanks,

Hi there,

I'm having this same issue, then I use SINGLE track select tool to move a series of stills, everything looks stuck and doesn't move. When I use ALL tracks select tool, everything moves as expected.

I can use that as a workaround I guess, but it then adds the labor of locking/unlocking tracks and those lock icons are real tiny when I have my screen resolution dialed up on these fancy monitors.

I followed the advice of restarting premier with the option key to wipe preferences, and this has not helped.

cheers

A>Restart your computer, check.

B>Reset your preferences:

     1. Exit the application

     2. Rename the Premiere Pro Folder in Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro

     3. Launch the application

C>Open the application in safe mode and check.

It could be a permissions issue so you can also try in a new user account if the issue still persists.
