Help me move an entire section properly with Ripple Edit

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Please help me, I might have overlooked a simpler option here. 😬

I need the fastest and easiest way of moving an entire song section (to another place within a song).

My requirements:

  • Delete empty hole when cutting
  • Shift stuff forwards when pasting
  • Also getting markers
  • Also getting bus data

THE ONLY GOOD WAY?
1. Enable Ripple edit all
2. ALT + timeline drag (to select bus data - introduced in 2020.08)
3. CTRL + ALT + X and check all boxes (to get markers)
4. CTRL + V

Result: Everything is moved according to requirements. But it's a lot of specific steps! Is there not a faster way?!

BAD WAY #1
1. Enable Ripple edit all
2. ALT + timeline drag
3. CTRL + X
4. CTRL + V

Result: No markers pasted!

BAD WAY #2
1. Enable Ripple edit all
2. CTRL + A followed by timeline selection (or keyboard shortcuts for the same)
3. CTRL + X
4. CTRL + V

Result: Won't get bus data!

Thanks for any input!

Check Ripple Edit All

Select all tracks.

Copy the entire song section.

Paste the section where you want.

It's very simple.

After that remember to un - check Ripple Edit.

once you get the swing of Ripple Edit, it is one of the most time-saving features deployed by Cakewalk.

Copy the entire song section.

The problem is, one can "Copy the entire song section" in several different ways... if you just CTRL + A, and use ALT + drag on the timeline to select measures, you lose bus data. If you just cut with CTRL + X, you lose markers...

Is it this messy for others, or am I doing something wrong?

Hi GreenLight,

You might need to use Cut Special to save your marker(s).

Kind regards,
