I am trying to edit a timeline in Premiere, but the cursor changes to a Left/Right arrow with a red line across it.  I've never seen this cursor before in CS4 and it is preventing me from moving clips in the timeline.

I tried to take a screen grab to show you all, but the cursor is always hidden in the final grab.

I resorted to drawing the curson in MS Paint.

I feel like such a dumbass.

I have searched high and low on Google.

Please help

For many (most?) of the cursors, there is a little icon that should reflect what you see in the Toolbox.

It's easy to select one that you do not want, but the picture should tell you what you have gotten instead.

Glad that Craig could nail it for you, and so quickly too.

Good luck,

Hi,

I'm using Adobe Premier and trying to find the key command to move the cursor in the timeline from the beginning of one clip to the beginning of the next clip, and back, or as a way of quickly scrolling through clips one at a time.

In FCP I use the arrow commands.

Can you help me?

Thanks!

WOW  Mr Shooternz you saved me.  I've spend 5 hours trying to figure out what happened.   I didn't think it could be solved.

Now I'm trying to find out what a red line that appeared at the bottom  of one my clip means.  I know it's some kinda warning but so far no answers.  PremierePro has lots of weird bells and whistles "underground information".
