Hey everyone, I recently updated to the latest version of FCPX and have been experiencing an issue overwriting to the primary storyline. I have a piece of B-Roll that i'd like the drop straight down as usual but now the clip is snapping to the end of the last clip on the primary timeline. And if I try dropping both clips of B-Roll down, they just go on either side of that last clip before the placeholder.
Did I perhaps accidentally enable a keyboard shortcut with my fat fingers?
As Ben said, Shift+CMD+Down Arrow should do the trick but apparently, there is an unknown issue preventing this.
Press "P" then select both B-roll clips and drag the selection onto the Primary timeline while keeping the Shift key pressed (the latter to ensure that you don't move the selection while dragging it). Does this work?
Could you post a screenshot that shows the top of the timeline pane and the timeline index. Ronny’s method is the quickest way around the problem, but I’m curious about what might be causing it. There is no shortcut that disabled this function.
