Timeline selection

Sometimes the timeline selection accidently appears on the timeline and I want to get rid of it quickly. Is there a simple way to do this. Thanks

Don? I could be wrong here, but I think that William maybe referring to not wanting to have a Loop Selection automatically appear, when working? In which case go into Preferences and use the "Collapse loop region . .. ". I use this often when I find that this gets in the way. Try it:

Tools | Preferences | Editing | and uncheck "Collapse loop region when no time selection is present"

Grazie

I always leave the "Collapse Loop Region" turned on. Otherwise, you"ll ALWAYS have a selection area unless you manually resize it to nothing. This option will allow a single click on the timeline to get rid of the loop region. It does have some side effects if you use "i" and "o" in the trimmer, though - so if you see something you used to do acting odd, this may be the reason.
