Dragging Cells

To readjust your timing, you can drag one or several cells to a new location in both the Timeline and Xsheet views.

You can drag a cell to any other frame in the same column or into another column.

To drag a cell to another location in the Timeline view:

1. In the Timeline view, select one or several cells to move.

2. Click on the cells selection and drag it to the new location.

If you drop the selection, it overwrites the existing cells.

If you hold [Ctrl] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] (Mac OS X) while dropping the selection, the cells are copied and not moved.

If your press [Shift] while dropping, the selection is inserted between the existing frames.

To drag a cell to another location in the Xsheet view:

1. In the Xsheet view, select one or more cells.

2. In the Xsheet view, select the small dotted area on the left side of the selected cells.

3. Drag the selection to any other cell in the same column or in another column.

 

If you drop the selection, it overwrites the existing cells.

If you hold [Ctrl] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] (Mac OS X)while dropping the selection, the cells are copied and not moved.

If your press [Shift] while dropping, the selection is inserted between the existing frames.

You can turn off the Gestural Drag Mode for the Xsheet view to prevent drawings from being dragged from one location to another. A Toggle Gestural Drag Mode button is available for this feature, accessible by customizing the Xsheet View toolbar. Otherwise, access it by right-clicking on a cell or the Xsheet's Edit menu.

To turn off the Gestural Drag mode:

In the Xsheet view, right-click and deselect the Gestural Drag Mode option.
You can also customize the Xsheet View toolbar and display the Toggle Gestural Drag mode button to enable and disable this option.

The dragging pad disappears when the Gestural Drag mode is off.

This feature does not apply for Annotation columns.
