Select an entire clip Do one of the following: mm Click the clip once. mm Move the skimmer (or the playhead) over a clip and press X. Note:  This results in a range selection that matches the boundaries of the clip. mm In the Event Browser, press Up Arrow or Down Arrow to move the selection to a neighboring clip. mm In the Event Browser, Option-drag from the start point to the end point of the clip. mm In the Timeline, move the skimmer (or the playhead if skimming is turned off) over the clip you want to select and press C. This method selects the clip in the primary storyline. Connected clips and storylines are attached to clips in the primary storyline, and they appear above and below the primary storyline. To select a connected clip or storyline with this keyboard shortcut method, position the pointer on the connected clip and press C. For more information, see Connect clips to add cutaway shots, titles, and synchronized sound effects on page 103 and Add storylines on page 265. A yellow border appears around the clip, indicating that it is selected.

Note:  A Timeline clip selection (shown above) is different from a Timeline range selection, which has visibly distinct range handles for adjusting the selection start point and end point. All selections in the Event Browser are actually range selections (with adjustable start and end points). Select multiple clips in the Event Browser or the Timeline mm To select a number of individual clips: Hold down the Command key as you click the clips you want to select. Note:  Command-clicking an Event Browser clip with preexisting ranges selects the ranges rather than the whole clip. mm To select all clips and ranges in the Event Browser or the Timeline: Click the Event Browser or Timeline to make it active, and choose Edit > Select All (or press Command-A).
