Ever had a bunch of files on the timeline with gaps in between and wished those gaps weren’t there?
Go to your Clip bin drop down menu and change your “Timeline Drop order” from the default (top to bottom) to “Left to Right”.
Now you can drag files from your clip bin and they will be sequentially left to right on your timeline! If you need to order them in a specific way change your “sort order” options in the clip bin drop down menu.
(Before you ask – Unfortunately this doesn’t effect the behaviour when dragging multiple files from the workspace browser, they will still be top to bottom)
This can make for a tidy workflow to make room tone: with strip silence Extract (leaves everything below a given threshold) and then dragging the resultant files back in from the clip bin left to right. Make a clip group and then loop the the resultant clip group to have instant room tone as needed (that you can untrim to any length).
