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.

I am using Premiere CS5.
Try pressing key "V" when in the timeline.
You may have selected the time stretch cursor. "X"
Thank you! Pressing "V" changed the cursor. I can now go back to editing.
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.
Excellent! Thank you!
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?
It's the same in PP.
Wow - thank you. So simple. I had the same problem but all sorted now.
Thank you so much!! I've been looking for this for hours.
It didn't work for me! Please help!
Thank you for this! I did the same thing and didn't have a clue how to get rid of it!
thank you!! it helped me
Thanks so much. This was infuriating for me also.
Now I can learn happily.
Whew!! Thanks so much! I was ready to throw my computer! This post saved me, big time!
I know right?! So glad I found the answer too!
Ah, yay for you, it saved the office from a lot of grumbling here!
Thank you very much, it worked for me
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".
I hadn't seen this before. Thanks for the tip, worked like a charm. Much appreciated.
