Paste to fill selection

Hey all,

 

just came up with a simple but I guess pretty powerful workflow idea.

 

"Paste-merge to fill selection":

 

Basically what this should do is, when copying something from the library

(or from the SF arrangement itself)

and we have an area marked, it should paste-merge (or maybe also *trim*)

copies of the phrase just to the selected area.

 

Given the design philosophy from SF this would tie in pretty well with it

and I am sure would become a very often used and powerful workflow tool.

 

What do you think?

 

Best,

 

tL.

Have you tried Edit >> Paste & Merge

Dropping a phrase from the library while you hold ALT also places it into the existing phrase without adding new space (although the previous content is replaced).

Yes, I did. Paste & merge is useful, thats why I came up with the "Paste-merge to fill selection" Idea in general.

 

Becasue when I just want to add something in a specific place of the phrase,

 

things get more complicated however.

Especially if the imported phrase is longer than the

phrase I want to paste it into.

 

Anyways, doesnt matter, was just an idea for increased speed.

 

Best,

Yes, I get the idea.

The only way to achieve this now is to trim the phrase before doing a Paste & Merge.

I have no concerns adding an item Paste & Merge & Trim that's enabled only if a span selection exists.

That would be great, as I love to work with that function (for Audio Editing)

in Pro Tools all the time. You would see how faster this little thing

makes editing, no matter what you edit.

 

Best,
