    Thanks, Matt. Good to know that the resizing of the selection works as desired.

    Thanks for the info about Shift-clicking on the marker to extend the selection. I was referring to hotkeys, however. There's something funky about Audition's handling of the Shift-(next/prev marker) key combo, but I don't remember exactly what. I do remember that it did not consistently extend the selection per OS standards.

    Hey Jim,

    Hi Matt,

    Once again the Audition team stands out as one team at Adobe that cares to engage with customers and respond. Thanks for that.

    As I noted in the original post, snapping and snapping to markers were on; I noted that because the button is not visible in the screen grab. Maybe that one bug (snapping a timeline event to a marker) has been fixed since then.

    It is critical in an audio editor that we be able to:

    1. Easily select the material between two markers, as depicted in David's request. The lack of this is, by far, the biggest impediment to using Audition. As noted, this is commonly available in other applications; I have an $80 audio application that's popular with voiceover artists, which lets you drop two markers and double-click between them to select the region. I now use this application instead of Audition.

    2. Drag the edges of a waveform selection to resize it, with an option to have the cursor snap to markers. I can't remember if Audition lets you resize selections this way.

    3. Extend a selection between the playhead and a marker (or vice versa). If I remember correctly, using a Shift-(next marker) hotkey combo does not extend a selection properly in Audition.

    I got fed up with Adobe's abandonment of Illustrator and failure to fix years-old defects in everything else... but if Audition were available as a stand-alone, NON-RENTAL application I'd buy it at a reasonable price. I like Audition and respect the Audition team.

    Does anyone actually work at Adobe anymore, outside of their subscription-harvesting department? This fundamental and crippling defect has lasted THREE YEARS?

    I shitcanned Adobe's derelict rental software years ago, and Audition was the app I was most reluctant to lose. But life and work has gone on without it.

    This is in 11.1 on Mac OS, by the way.

    This is on version 13.0 under Mac OS, by the way.

    This renders the application nearly unusable for many situations, by the way, because you can't cut sound to picture. If you turn "show audio units" off, the source viewer won't let you do any precision selection on an audio file; it forces the playhead to frame boundaries.

    This is a serious defect that requires immediate attention.

    Yep, I just complained bitterly in the forum that audio scrubbing was broken, only to find that the update apparently turned it off.

    ALSO: Scrubbing is useless when "show audio units" is enabled now.

    I was going to delete this and make it less pissy-sounding, but it has other votes so please accept my acknowledgment that the tone is little harsher than I intended.

    NOW FIX IT RIGHT AWAY OR I WILL LAUNCH A FULL TANTRUM.

    That was it, thanks! This did occur to me, but I couldn't investigate it because the files' start/end timecodes aren't shown anywhere in the UI that I can find. Source timecode is not available as a column header in the upper left pane, which is one place I'd expect it. Also in the info pane in the lower right. Seems like a pretty big omission. Am I missing it somehow?

    I was using time of day for the timecode, and we weren't shooting in the wee hours... so I don't know how the file ended up at 17 minutes.

    Thanks again for the timely reply. It tangentially led me to watch a video about the Preview editor and then to Sound Remover. Looks way cool!

    Thanks, Andreas. I commented there and linked back to this.

    It's disgraceful and insulting to customers that this is Adobe's "bug-reporting" facility. It's not even a legitimate comment forum, because you CAN'T EDIT POSTS!

    WTF? Adobe is laughing at its customers at this point: "Look at these morons wasting their time posting their gripes on this half-assed Web page that it took an intern two hours to whip up!"

    I agree that a project-wide relinking function is critical, but I seriously doubt that Adobe would ever introduce it as a text-based search-and-replace tool. That's just not user-friendly enough.

    However... they could present a UI showing a list of all paths used by files in the project, and allow the user to select one and then redirect it and all those like it to a new location.

    Yes, I'm not really asking for auto-linking to be fixed. I'm asking for MANUAL linking to be IMPLEMENTED.

    It's idiotic that this program has no way to simply reconnect all of a project's files to a NEW SOURCE DIRECTORY.

    I don't know what kind of amateur-hour or gimped workflow people are using to get around this, but the problem should not have existed in version 1, let alone whatever version this is.

    This is related to the whole defective mess that is media linking.

    I have filed a bug on this behavior as well, but we need to decide on common terminology so we can garner votes and Adobe can't pretend that it's a surprise.

    The problem is that Premiere lacks any proper way to simply re-link all the media in a project, and (as you've noted) will happily and silently relink to the WRONG MEDIA.

    What we need is a way to manually direct Premiere to link to media in a certain location AND NOWHERE ELSE. Without this, I think it's nearly unusable. Trying to work around this defect is doubling my editing time, no exaggeration.

    Same here. I need to copy all material used in my project to a new location, excluding unused clips. This has worked fine in the past. Now, it fails less than a second into the "analyzing" step, and I have plenty of disk space. I've tried managing even one simple timeline by itself from my project, and it still fails instantly.

    This is a major problem, since it eliminates the only apparent way to collect assets that were used in your timelines... for color correction, audio post, archiving, or any other purpose.

    PLEASE FIX THIS. This breaks an entire workflow. I can't even start color correction now until I manually isolate every clip used in my program. Seriously?

    Unfortunately I can find no way to prevent a bin from opening up as a floating window, and then no way to dock the floating window as a tab in the project pane.

    Very annoying. I've been planning to ask about this in the forum but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    This stems from Premiere's fundamental failure to distinguish clips from timeline events.

    In a properly designed editing system:
    1. The things in the bin are clips; they're references to files on disk.
    2. The things in the timeline are events; they refer to clips.

    Then, applying effects to an entire shot is easy: You just apply them to the clip, instead of to timeline events. Any time you change the effects on the clip, all the timeline events that refer to the clip will show the result... automatically.

    So really, the enhancement to ask for is a proper clip/event relationship. But since this relationship is fundamental to the internal workings of the program and its storage format... it seems that it was blown at the beginning and there's little hope of a re-architecting now.
