moderated Re: How to use the time shifs tool in audacity

Hi Michael,
You can only use the time shift tool using a mouse, not the keyboard. However, a keyboard user can time shift tracks using the commands on the align tracks sub menu, which is on the Tracks menu.
For example, if you want to time shift the audio in a track so that it starts at a certain time:
1. Move the cursor to the time at which you want the audio to start.
2. Select the track which contains the audio which you want to time shift, and ensure that other tracks are not selected.
3. Open the tracks menu, open the align tracks sub menu, and choose Start to Cursor/Selection start.
