How to move tracks manually

Question

Hi,

 

How do you move tracks manually, like click and drag each track so vocals are with vocals, percussion is in a specific order etc etc. 

 

Thanks.

In the track pane, you can grab tracks in some places (the mouse cursor will change to a double up/down arrow) by left clicking and dragging them to a new place. There will be a highlighted line to show you where the track will be dropped when you let go of the mouse button.

You can also create folders to organize your tracks. If you right click on your track (again, where you click can change this) and get the long context menu, there will be an option for "move to folder". You can create a new folder and move the track in one step. You can also right click on a blank area in the track pane and create a folder without moving a track. Other tracks can be drag-and-dropped into a folder, or moved through their right-click menus.

In the console view, holding the ALT key and then holding left click on a blank spot on a track strip will allow you to move it to the left or right with the mouse.

Click the Track Icon to the right of the track number and drag it up or down to where you want.

Some footnotes to what others have already stated: Since my mouse motor coordination has gotten worse over the decades, I tend to prefer a larger target than a smaller target to grab onto. Also, when dragging tracks into folders, the destination changes from a single line to a rectangle.
