Select multiple clips in timeline

Postby mikolaskova » Tue Sep 12, 2017 6:55 pm

Hi,

how can I select multiple clips in the timeline (in order to move, copy, duplicate it)?

Thanks and regards,

Adriana

Thank you for answering. Unfortunately this does not work on my installation (kubuntu, Open Shot 1.4.3)...

Hmm... if I remember, Ubuntu follows the Windows convention of cntl-left-click to add to a selection. Does it work like that in other programs other than OpenShot

I'm running OpenShot 2.4.0 on Windows 7.

Here is another method I can use to select multiple clips. Left click on a track where there is no clip. Drag to draw a marquee to include the clips you want to select. This is kind of a kludge as I have to have empty tracks between 'real' tracks to start the marquee.

Thank you very much. When using the appimage all these methods work fine (but not with the 1....version that can be installed with my package manager).
