Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: http://bit.ly/ChordMasterYT What Is the Smart Tool? The Smart Tool combines the most commonly used tools together into one button selection. Instead of navigating back and forth between the top tool bar and the edit window to select and deselect some of the most commonly used tools, you can use the Smart Tool to perform the functions of multiple tools. To select the Smart Tool, navigate to the top tool bar and click the small portion that surrounds the Grabber Tool, Trimmer Tool and Selector Tool.? The small portion resembles a bracket that overlays these three tools. Selecting the Smart Tool allows you to use all three of these tools at the same time. If you hover over an audio clip and keep the mouse cursor in the top half of the audio region, the cursor will look like a bracket icon.? You can use this to select a point in your song to begin playing from. You can also click and drag with this tool to select a portion of an audio clip. If you hover over an audio clip and keep the mouse cursor in the bottom half of the audio region, the cursor will change to the Grabber Tool and look like a hand icon. If you hover the mouse cursor near the edge of an audio region, the cursor will appear as a bracket icon that looks like a staple.? This Trimmer Tool allows you to click and drag from the end of an audio region and either shorten or lengthen that region. By combining these three tools into one, the Smart Tool simplifies things and allows for greater efficiency in your workflow.
