Cutting section from audio

I’m using version 2.0.3 and I’m unable to cut a section from the audio. I’ve looked at the different FAQ’s but nothing seems to cover my problem.

When i use the selection tool to mark where I want to start and drag to the end the audio starts playing. I’ve tried the crtl x and the scissor icon and they do nothing.

Thank you,

Press the yellow Stop button, then drag the selection in the blue waveform, not on the Timeline above the waves.

Dragging a selection on the Timeline does a one-time play of the play region that you dragged, and does not make or affect selections in the waveform. Please see .
