Piece of audio appears with a frame around it

Hope all is well. Somehow, several audio pieces of two tracks I recorded acquired a “frame” around them. Ive noticed that with the frame around of piece of audio, I can know longer crossfade into the edit, and I can no longer adjust volume within the audio piece. How can I get rid of the frame and be able to crossfade and adjust volume again?

It sounds like you may have made the audio event into an “Audio Part”. If so, try selecting it and use the “Dissolve Part” function on the Audio menu.

Thanks sooooo much. That was it. Much appreciated
