Editing Instances in the Timeline

Manually Creating a New Instance

Highlight a row by clicking on the code row name or row number. ( If there are no code rows, you will need to create a new row. See the section “Add a New Blank Row to a Timeline” )

Position the playhead at the point in the timeline where you want the instance to start or end. Press down OPTION+COMMAND and drag the playhead in the timeline to the required end or starting point.

Note: Using a 2 button mouse, you can hold down OPTION+COMMAND+RIGHT CLICK and drag in any row to create an instance. Pressing CONTROL and clicking activates the right mouse click. So, you can press CONTROL+OPTION+COMMAND and click & drag in any row to create an instance too.
