Highlight Click and Drag
« on: March 23, 2017, 02:05:54 PM »
Hey guys.  I am a little baffled as to why we don't have a highlight click and drag feature when we are highlighting objects on a time line.  I have a 45 minute timeline with text slide, after text slide.   And it is very time consuming to have to click each individual clip so I can move all of them.  And especially if I click a box the wrong way, they all become deselected and I have to start over again.  Now unless there is an easier way that I am unaware of, this seems like a big missing feature.

of you select a block on the timeline, it will have the handles, would you suggest to also mark it in color?
and it should not de-select unless you click on another block.

Thanks for replying.  Maybe highlight wasn't the correct word to use.  What I mean is being able to select multiple numbers of blocks at one time.  Instead of holding Ctrl down and selecting one block after another.  A simple click and drag over the timeline would help speed up workflow.

I see, noted, will see what we can do once 6.0 is out of alpha
