Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Selector and Grabber tools, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
The Selector and Grabber tools are probably going to your most used edit tools…for editing, manipulating and playing back track material in Pro Tools.…Just click the Selector button or press F7 button to activate the Selector tool,…then you can move the Selector tool to any point in the track and just click…once and Pro Tools will begin playback when you press the spacebar.…(Music Playing)…Obviously, with the Selector tool you can select an area to play.…So if I click and drag, we've selected this area and that's the part that…will playback.…
