Consider the project shown below. I have 3 tracks (one stereo and two mono). The first track has some cruft at the beginning that needs to be removed, but tracks 2 and 3 already are aligned with track 1. I have highlighted the part I want to remove from all three tracks. However, if I just press Delete, only track 1 is affected, and thus the clip on track 1 gets pushed up on the timeline while tracks 2 and 3 remain unaffected. Obviously this results in a misalignment between the tracks.
So my question is this: Is there a way I can “delete” the highlighted portions of tracks 2 and 3 at the same time as I am deleting the highlighted portion of track 1, such that all three tracks stay in sync with each other? In other words, is there a way to delete and shift parts of a track that completely ignores the presence or absence of “clips” on the track, such that all clips later on the track will be shifted earlier in the timeline and retain all their relative positioning?
In other words, the final result should look like this:
