I have a (remote, online) student working on a Windows machine who is unable to drag sounds from the Source or Region list onto the timeline. See screenshot: this strange cursor is what he sees when he tries (the sound is called ‘market’). Either dragging to an existing track or underneath to create a new one. He’s a computer beginner as well as an Ardour beginner, and I’m not so far ahead of him with Ardour so struggling to work out what to do as I’ve never encountered it myself (on Mac).
All sounds and tracks are stereo.
In this case he made a new session, imported sounds as new tracks, deleted one audio file and tried to drag it back from the source list onto the track it was just deleted from. Can someone enlighten us?
