2.8.3. Using the selection controls

The selection controls allow you to navigate through or to change the active selection. For their use, see again Section 1.5.16.

Example: extending the begin of a selection with one second

Assume that you have made a selection and that you want to add a time interval of 1 second to the begin of it. In that case you should perform the following actions:

  1. Move the crosshair to the begin of the active selection
