[David Lawrence] "Sorry Guys, I can't give Apple a pass on this. Destructive behavior like you see in the video is not OK. If it's not a bug it is without question a design, implementation, and QA failure. I'll be very curious to see if this gets fixed in the next release."

Again, can't thank you enough for the example. It makes more sense now. In this case, yeah, I think Apple might want to protect the user. Point taken.

But of course, you have to hear me out. :)

Now, pretend that gap was a video clip, you couldn't do what you want to do either without losing a few frames on either the gap (now video) clip or the surrounding clips, so why not just trim the gap a few frames and be done? It keeps the relationship of the video above and audio below.

You could also add that audio below to the primary and connect the video to it. Expanding audio in the primary would allow you to overlap the audio like you have it now. You could even connect the middle blue layer to the gap to keep your cut point of the top most layer, but I can't see the rest of the timeline so perhaps that wouldn't work, so ymmv as the kids say.

Thank you, David, for keeping this going.
