Hi all:

I need to move an entire clip (in this case an audio clip) a small amount. I've tried to select the clip and then use the hand icon but this is too heavy handed and doesn't allow fine adjustments. I need to be able to move in very small amounts.
ALSO, I don't want to shave anything off the clip, just move it.
I've looked online and can't find anything regarding this.

Anyone?

It sounds like you're needing to enlarge the audio timeline in order to manipultae it in smaller incriments. . Go to.... Preferences...Editing...Enlarge Timeline....at least I think that's what it's called. It will allow you to move the audio in much smaller incriments down to one tenth of a frame.

Glad to see you're sorted... but doesn't ALT-[Arrow] work for you? It does here (though it's a frame at a time, may still be too coarse for you?)

But this seems to only work when it feels like it! I can use it five or six times, then it just refuses to work... hmmm

I don't see any limits using Alt+Arrow in either direction.

If you're working with 4K clips you might need to reduce the preview resolution to High rather than Full HD, and/or use shadow files to speed up PD's display rate.
