Ripple editing across all tracks

With ripple editing all tracks affected by the cut have their right hand clips to move with the editing. However, if there are tracks belonging to the group which should move with the edit but have no audio going at the edit point they will stay in place. In Reaper there are two modes of ripple editing that solves this problem, ripple editing single track and ripple editing all tracks.

At the moment I have to manually select all clips to the right (extending to the end of the project). This would not have been so bad if I could have made the selection into a group so it would be recallable but as it is this is really tedious.

Anyone with a solution?

Yes, that is a limitation of Ripple mode: it's not really designed for that kind of use case.

There is an action to select all regions after the edit point, "Edit | Select | Select All After Edit Point" (<Shift>+<Ctrl>+E by default), which is certainly simpler than manually selecting them all.

Alternatively, "Track | Insert Time" will insert the same amount of time on all selected tracks, though for this you need to know exactly how much time to insert, rather than just dragging the regions. http://manual.ardour.org/editing/editing-regions-and-selections/insertremove-time/ has more.

Great I will try that. Unfortunately I have much of this kind of editing.
Thanks!

Great advice. It actually does exactly what I want (as long as it is small movements and no precise automation since that and markers do not follow). In my case I may move everything +-10ms so it works really well.
