I’m working my way through the Final Cut Pro 10.4 Core Training.  I’m using FCP version is 10.4.2 on a Mac Mini running High Sierra version 10.13.4 with a Standard Mac Keyboard.

In the Tutorial 10.4, Chapter 7, section “Moving and copying Media between Events”.

I can as the tutorial states move media between events; Select multiples of media. Drag and drop media into other event. WORKS!

BUT when I attempt to COPY media between events; When I hold down the OPTION Key and try to drag and drop it does not work. As soon as I hold down the Option Key the mouse changes from a HAND icon to a back to back arrows icon to change the Media In and Out boundaries. Can not drag and drop.

Please advise.

Hi Amanda, try waiting to press the Option key until you have already begun the drag and drop operation.

Oh I see – you have to drag outside the selected clip(s) before holding the Option key. OK! that works, thanks.
