variaudio problem...

i’m having some problems with variaudio in cubase 8.5.
i wanna use the scissors tool and cut an audio clip, but i can only cut a small section in the middle of the clip.
i wanna cut outside of that section.
in the screenshot, you’ll see the short, thin, grey line, at the bottom of the clip.
that’s the only small area where i can cut.
i’ve been using variaudio before, but i can’t remember having this problem before…
