Select Track Start to Cursor affected by label tracks

Permanent link to this post Posted by DickN » Tue Aug 08, 2017 3:17 pm

Using Windows 7 SP1, 2.2.0 alpha nightly builds 23 July and 6 August both have this problem:
If a label track is selected in addition to an audio track, "Select->Region->Track Start to Cursor" always selects from time=0, but "Select Cursor to Track End" selects to the end of the audio track even it it's not the end of the project.
I haven't back-tracked to find the build where this quirk originated. Testing only on Windows 7 for now, my Vista machine has a bad power supply.

That does not seem to be happening here (on Linux)
Could you post a screenshot of your project , showing which tracks are selected immediately before you do "Select Cursor to Track End"

OK, I made a simple example.

1: Generate 10 sec noise
2: Shift clip to center of screen
3: New Label Track
4: Set cursor to center
5: Select both Audio and Label track
6: Save window000.png

11: Deselect All
12: Set Cursor to Center of Audio track (Audio track now selected but not the Label track)
13: "Select Track Start to Cursor"
14: Save window003.png
