Cropping or extending a Primary track segment

Whether you're working with sound files that consist of a single segment, or those that you've split into several segments, at times you'll want to shorten (crop) a segment or extend the segment to add a bit of silence to the beginning or end of a track. It's easy to do this—you simply drag the beginning or end of a segment.

It's risk-free, too. That's because RecordForAll uses non-destructive editing. No matter how much you edit a segment, you never really change the original sound file, so you can always get back to it. There are other benefits, too: your onscreen editing goes much faster and your working files are much smaller. Remember, too, that you can use the "Undo" feature to undo almost anything you do to the Playlist and in the Timeline.

If you want to crop or extend an Overlay segment, see Working with Primary and Overlay tracks.
