    I'm at a loss... It's a basic function, adding a measure at the beginning or in the middle of a piece, but I can't see where to do it in cakewalk..... Can anyone clue me in??

    The way I'm used to thinking and doing this is to select all events after measure x, then Edit->Slide selected events forward one measure. Does that make sense?

    yeah and nay..... for instance - If I've changed my mind and want to make a 8 bar interlude at measure 50 - but I didn't start/stop to create a break in the line AT measure 50 (am I making sense??) then when I "Select" the event it selects the material in that line before and after measure 50...... or am I missing something>?

    I think I understand. In my version of Cakewalk (6.0), I would set the time to the point where I want to start the insert (measure 50:1.000), that is GoTo->Time, then Edit->Select->From Now. That selects all events that start on or after that time (you can adjust the time a few ticks before measure 50 if you've got some upbeat stuff right before it). Then do Edit->Slide, choose 8 measures, and that should do it.

    Holler if it doesn't work ;).

    To select the point to start from I find it easier to highlight all the tracks then click the measure of the point I want to start at. Hit F9 and it will selct everything after that point (F10 selects everything before and you can use a combination of F9/F10 to select a middle portion).

    <sigh>... I see part of my problem now...... the version of CW I was using on that machine is made for touch screens and doesn't have "slide"..... ah well....


    Thanks All!
