How To Delete Markers?

Question

How can I delete markers in the track view?  I have some Key markers like C and A# up near that top that I want to remove.  I saw this question in the old forum and it had an answer and it also had a suggestion to check the Help manual.  So I tried both.  The answer was to click the marker and select Delete.  That doesn't happen in my version of Cakewalk by BandLab.  Clicking the marker opens a marker dialog and it has no Delete option.  You can set the marker to No Pitch, but it's still there.  I want it gone.  I also checked the online Help and its instructions are similar and they also don't work.  If someone can point me to the correct Help docs I'll try that.  I selected Help, Documentation in the Cakewalk interface menu and then I clicked Index and searched for Markers.  The documentation does not match the product.  Not good.  Finally, I have about 30 markers to delete.  It would be nice if I could select them all and delete them all in one move.

Thank you.  That did it.  I didn't know there was a Markers view, but I should've guessed.  There are about 20 different views in this product.  I was able to delete the markers easily.  I was even able to select the first, hold down Shift, select the last, then delete them all.

There are several ways to delete markers:

  • Click (and keep the mouse button pressed) a marker in the time ruler, then press the DELETE key.
  • Drag in the time ruler to select the markers you want to delete, then go to Edit > Delete Special and only select Markers. Note that this only works if clips overlap the selected time region.
  • Go to Views > Markers to open the Markers view, select the markers you want to delete, then press the DELETE key.

More info about markers can be found here.

The marker I'm trying to delete has a black dot next to it and won't delete by "normal" means.  How then, please?

Can we have a screenshot of what you are seeing.

What version of Cakewalk?  Define "normal" means.

The black dot is indicating which marker is to the left of the NOW

It would add to convenience and workflow to be able to delete from a right click. I never really understood why that option is not available -you're essentially in marker edit mode.
