When I ripple-delete a part on the timeline, all subsequent parts on the track are shifted leftward, but the markers don’t move. This renders the markers meaningless. Is there any way to bind a marker to a part, so that the marker and the part move together?
My project has just one track, which contains an audio book. My task is to delete sections from it. The markers indicate where each chapter starts. So, if an audio part moves, any related markers need to move along with it, automatically. However, when I ripple-delete a part, the parts later on the timeline shift leftward, but unfortunately, the corresponding markers don’t. Consequently, the markers no longer correctly indicate where each chapter starts. (I’ve simplified the situation to make discussion easier.)
So again, my question is: How can I bind a marker to a part, so that if I move the part, the marker moves along with it, automatically?
I’m using Cubase 9 Pro on Windows 8.1.
Here is my ripple-delete procedure:
To select a range based on a part, I press 2 on the keyboard to select the Range Selection tool, and then I double-click the part.
To ripple delete the range, I press Ctrl-Shift X (That might be a custom keyboard shortcut – I’m not sure.)
To be clear, “parts” are defined in the manual as containers for MIDI or audio events. So I believe “parts” are the rectangles on the timeline that contain audio or MIDI. (The word “clip” seems to have the same meaning in the manual, but it’s not clear.)
