Trouble pasting into selected track when copying from a sequence

Me: I'm using the latest Premiere Pro CC (long-time user) on Windows 10. 

Problem: How can I select which track will receive my clipboard-pasted items?

Tried already: Previously, I could select which track my copy/paste would paste into by selecting the track by clicking V3, for example, and paste into track 3. Now, with V3 selected and V2 not selected, Premiere pastes into V2 even if not selected. The only way to keep it from not pasting into V2 is to lock V2. Also, V1 is selected and locked. I know about using Alt to copy, but this is from sequence to sequence. How can I select which track will receive my pasted items? Thanks.

Open two timelines (pancake).

Drag the clip from one sequence into the other sequence.

 

You need to target the track.

Good morning, sir! Think he said he tried that, M. I was thinking it might be a corrupt sequence, perhaps updated from a previous version or the like.

 

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi Kenneth,

Sorry about this. You said: Now, with V3 selected and V2 not selected, Premiere pastes into V2 even if not selected. 

This seems like buggy behavior because I'm not seeing what you are seeing. When I copy a clip from V2 on Sequence 1, and have V3 but not V2 selected, it pastes into V2.

I think one or the other sequence may be corrupted. I think that pasting the clips into a brand new sequence may help. If that does not work, first sync settings, then, try trashing preferences. 

If this persists, file a bug here. Please feel free to ask further questions on this topic or to follow up.

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks. This makes sense. I re-use template files that I've setup from previous projects. I'll try from a new sequence and see. Thanks.
