    So Im from a Media Composer background….

    I need to ripple delete across all tracks

    I mark an in, I mark an out, I hit x (Ive assigned ripple delete to this hot key) An DR tries to take out a completely un selected area.

    If I Undo and hit it again it does what its meant to. What am I doing wrong?

    That is odd, Sean.

    Does it work correctly if you use the default ripple delete key combination (shift+backspace)?

    I think its because if I have a clip selected somewhere in the timeline it ripple deletes that rather than the area between my in and out marks

    MC ignores anything that’s selected and only takes out between the markers.

    Its lethal because you can not be aware of what its done. Im working on a 90 min timeline….

    You could move the playhead to your in point and cut all tracks (Command+B [mac] or Control+B [windows]), then move playhead to out point, cut all tracks. Select all clips in the cut section and hit Shift+Backspace to ripple delete selection. A few more steps but avoids the issue you are having.
