Is it possible to insert a track from the trimmer window between two tracks on the timeline?
Is it possible to swap a selected track on the timeline from a region in the trimmer window?

No you can only insert a new track to the top or bottom of the timeline from the trimmer but not in the middle.

The trimmer creates events not tracks so I beleive the answer is no. You would have to delete the events in the region and then fill the empty region from the trimmer.

It's crazy jumping between editors at how the jargon changes. It looks like I'm using the wrong words to describe what I want to do.

To better explain my second question I'm trying to take a region selected in the trimmer window and have it replace a clip/event on the timeline.

Seems Vegas is a very mouse clicky, dragy droppy as compared to other editors like Premier where you can do alot of clip editing in the trimmer window before dropping it into the timeline. I see where Premier and FCP X have taken some ideas from Vegas with their new updates.

I've never used Trimmer in my work (no need for me), since Vegas allows me to do anything I want right on the timeline. Look in the help for key combinations that you can use.

Oh I see... yea Vegas can do that. Make sure that you have the Enable Timeline Overwrite button enabled, then select your region and use Fit to Fill and Vegas will overwrite the events in that region with the selection in the trimmer.

I'm not sure what kind of "editing" you want to do in the trimmer. You just mark your in-point (I key) and out-point (O key) and then insert onto the timeline with A key (Add From Cursor) or Shift+A keys (Add To Cursor) in Vegas.

Yea, Vegas is by far the fastest streamlined workflow for video editing so why wouldn't they steal from the best. ;-)
