Common Region Edit Operations

This section covers a set of region editing operations that you are likely to use often while working on a session. Depending on your work habits (and experience of other DAWs) you will find some of these operations critical while others are used only rarely.

You can carry out all of these operations from the keyboard (see Default Keyboard Shortcuts for a list). Equivalent operations can be performed with the mouse in most cases.

You may want to review your understanding of the edit point/range and which regions will be affected by region operations.
