Not to move the audio file when a portion is cut mid way

Post by Ankit Shukla » Tue May 11, 2021 5:51 pm

When ever we cut something in between of our audio, the audio file on the left of the cut is automatically moved to the left (to fill the cut out space) and this is something that nobody wants.
I hope that your team will take this into their consideration.
Thanks :)

Most of the time that is exactly what people want, but I figure that what you mean is that for your current work it is not what you want.
Probably what you want is "Split Cut" (shortcut: "Alt + Ctrl + X").
You can also find it in "Edit menu > Remove Special > Split Cut"
