Summary0002276: Select all clips after cursor.
DescriptionHi there.

I have been looking for this a while, and have not found a quick way to select all the clips on the timeline after the cursor.

When I edit a video, I have a lot of clips in the timeline. Sometimes it happens that I watch the video from the start, and then adjust one of the clips in the timeline. Then I need to move the rest of the clips as one to fit with the adjusted clip.

I know that if you hold down the shift button you can select multiple clips, but normally I am zoomed in quite a bit to get the exact timing of the clip right, so to zoom out just to select all the clips after the cursor and then zoom back in to move them just so is a bit of a pain.
Steps To ReproduceEdit massive video, and find that one of the clips in the first bit needs changing.

I don't know, maybe my workflow sucks. Maybe it's better to have every clips pruned to perfection first, but I generally just throw the bits I think is cool on the timeline, then maybe sync it up to a track I like, etc... and then I find that I need to move the rest of the video around on the timeline.
Additional InformationThis feature could be on the menu that you get when you right-click on the timeline

"Select all clips after cursor" pretty much says it all. Any clip that has a start time that is greater than the cursor time in the timeline gets selected, and then all the clips can be dragged around as a whole.

Don't worry, I found the "Spacer tool"

Boy, do I feel stupid.

Thanks for all the hard work, guys.

I think you need the spacer tool, this will move all clips at the cursor, so you can add or close gaps anywhere in the project. You can select this on the tools menu, or there is an icon for in along the bottom on kdenlive, can't remember the shortcut of hand.
