Strange selection behaviour in Premiere timeline

Hi all,

I've been noticing something weird with the last couple of versions of Premiere. When selecting objects in the timeline by clicking and dragging a box over them, often random tracks/clips won't be selected. It's not related to the linked selection toggle or what tracks are activated, and there doesn't seem to be a pattern as to when it happens. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

cheers

Craig

Yes I've noticed that too, and I still haven't figured it out completely. But it seems that if you drag the selection from the audio part of the timeline, the video only gets selected when you drag all the way past its track.

 

I don't know if it's a bug or they decided to change the selection behaviour for some unknown reason (as is customary for Adobe lately).

It's bizarre right? I went through a help chat session with someone from Adobe and the only thing they wanted to try was resetting all my preferences (keyboard shortcuts, workspaces etc) which I can't really do right now being in the middle of a project. Also kept trying to suggest that it's due to Linked Selection but it's definitely not related to that
