Is there a function for "Select all until end"?
on Jun 15, 2014 at 9:13:51 pm

I work with multi-track files (up to 200 or so) and I often want to select everything to the right of a certain file, for re-sizing and getting the right fade-times, and so on. Right now I've been doing it by hand, by double-clicking the vertical track scroller (to go into the mini-track view), and zooming out on the tracks all the way, and then pressing D until I get the square-selector, and dragging my mouse for 15 seconds down and to the right. I'm hoping there's a shortcut I don't know about, is there?

Thanks
Marcus

[Marcus Gardner] "I'm hoping there's a shortcut I don't know about, is there?"
There is a selection tool on the tool bar and if you zoom way out on your project you can use the selection tool to select an entire area.

There is also an inexpensive plug-in that will help. It's the VASST Event Tools plug-in ($9.95 USD).



You can select anything in any direction and a whole lot more (cuz' that's just what the selection tab does).

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm the author of Event Tools and I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about it.

I'd recommend John's solution. I'm still using the SelectEventsFromCursor script he wrote in 2004, which I assume is also included in that package? First thing I do every time I have to install Vegas is bind that script to Ctrl+w. Not sure why I picked W back then but it's so engrained in my muscle memory I can't go changing it now.

To quickly select a group of events: Click the top left event, hold down Shift, and click the bottom right event.
