Why can't more editing in iMovie?

I did not use iMovie in a few months, but I am at a total loss. When I start a new project, I import my video. When it it is important at the top as usual, it shows only as a small place. Not long with yellow borders where I can cut and paste and drag clips down more! What I am doing wrong? Please help before I pull all my hair haha!

You can zoom out your clips in the case where pane using the gear and sliding Zoom icon to the right:

This could be the reason?

  • Why can't I edit my document?

    I created a document in PS CS2. I saved it as a few different file types. I had to make changes, but when I went in there, I'm not able to select any part of the document to change. Unfortunately, I created everything on a single layer (do not know if this is important).

    Why am I not able to change it?

    If you want to retain editability in your document you should practice non-destructive editing techniques.  Here are a few things to keep in mind when working in Photoshop:

    (1) If you want to be able to edit your layers later, always save your document as a Photoshop file, known as a PSD also known.  It is the best way to preserve all your layers to the maximum quality.

    (2) always create a new layer when you add a new element to your document or make a significant change with a tool.

    (3) duplicate the layer you are working on when changes or when there is any possibility that you could make a mistake.

    (4) always to save multiple versions of your document at various stages so that you can return to previous documents and repeat if you need to.

    (5) use the history tab to move backward or forward in the steps you do to undo or redo changes:

    I want to know that I can not change (cut the lines/words/phrases) in PDF files on my laptop... can u help please...

    Hello Jonathan New Zealand,.

    Addition information of Santosh, please let me explain further.
    If you have only downloaded a PDF reader software as Adobe Reader which can be downloaded for free, you can only read the file you cannot change the file. You need to download or buy PDF Editor so you can edit and read the PDF file.

    Hope this explains a little further.


  • Why can I not edit my background layer?


    I ran an action (that I bought) on a photo.

    Is that what you want to do, cloning & healing etc?

    Whatever it is, you need not to do it again. Here are some non-destructive options:

    1) there is usually a place in the the layer stack (IE, above the pixelated layers and adjustment layers below. In this case probably between the Local contrast and Compression of the range of layers) where you can insert a blank layer and clone it with the tool set "current & below".

    2) click on the background layer, then CMD + J (mac) to duplicate it and clone of the strike. (This may not be fully the effect according to the mode of these layers above it pixelated belnd, and what you're trying to do below.)

    3) go to the top layer, CMD + OPT + MST + E to make a layer of composite to the pf albums battery and work on or above strike.

    And if you want to work in a destructive way, drag the lock icon from the BG layer to the trash and work directly on it. But see the warnings from #2 above.

  • Why can't I edit files PDF that is not protected?

    I have recently updated my Adobe Acrobat DC software to the latest version. I am connected to my Adobe account, but on a document that I want to use the edit function, it keeps forcing me to pay for the service, which is already included in the subscription I have. It is not a matter of the PDF itself being locked or protected by the author of the document - including mine. No reason?

    Open the document in Adobe Acrobat format, not Acrobat Reader.

    Why can't edit my contacts to search with the new ios 10.0.1

    It seems they have changed the way search works after the update. You can always edit contacts by opening the Contacts app, then open the contact you want to change. We do not know why they made the change, but unfortunately it is out of our reach. I don't know that they had a reason for this. If this is not the case, they will probably patch in an another mini update.
