I am editing in Premiere Pro and I activated something that is causing me problems. When I try to more a piece of video I get a blue down arrow with bars on either side.The video will move but everything shifts.  I must be in some type of mode becasue I cannot add efects into the timeline. How do I get out of it?

Thanks,

Mark

I was having the same issue, and unplugging the monitor, and plugging it back in seemed to fix the problem.

By the time I had an Adobe representative screen sharing, the problem was "fixed".

OK.

In the tool panel to the left of the sequence, which tool is highlighted?

The top arrow is highlighted. The one that would be illuminated when you press "V." When I right-click on a piece of video I get a different set of options than normal and sometimes it's just a small list of options at the top left corner of the program.

Are you cutting on an external monitor?

This could be caused by a discrepancy between where the cursor is, and where the monitor thinks it is.

Likely this is a simple unplug your external monitor and plug it back in.

I had this happen to me, and it was just some error in communication between my laptop and the hdmi connected external monitor.

I know this is SUPER old, but did anyone actual find out what this is how to fix it rather than unplugging an external monitor? I'm running on my iMac, and am having the same issue as the poster. It's really causing me issues, I've restarted my iMac and nothing seems to help.

Did you find anything to help you solve this issue? I have tried everything I can think of and everything I have read, but nothing is helping and I cannot even select or grab clips to move them around the timeline on Premiere Pro.

The same thing was happening to me when I tried to drag an adjustment layer over to the time line, these lines and arrow kept showing. Then I tested it again and dragged over normal footage, the arrow and lines still appeared but the footage went in. I then zoomed in as close as I could and found the adjustment layer had in fact become embedded into the timeline it was just super small and skinny so it looked like nothing was coming up 🙂 Hope it was as silly as that for you guys
