<title>Grouping and ungrouping clips</title>
<p>The grouping and ungrouping functions are useful when you want to add or separate audio tracks from video clips, or when you want to create a block of clips that you can select, edit and move all at once.</p>

<p>You can move a clip within a layer or move it to a different layer.</p>
<p>Click and drag a single clip to move it, and release the mouse button to place it. Dragging horizontally keeps the clip on the same layer, but dragging it vertically moves the clip to a different layer (see <link xref="layers">Understanding layers</link> for more information).</p>
<p>To move a clip to an existing layer, drag it on the layer and release it when a grey shadow representing the space the clip would occupy appears. To move a clip to a new layer, drag it to the middle space between two existing layers. Once the grey shadow (now a thin rectangle) appears between the layers, release it.</p>
<p>To move multiple clips at the same time, use the <key>Ctrl</key> or <key>Shift</key> keys to select multiple clips (see <link xref="makeselections">Making selections</link> for more details). Selected clips do not need to be on the same layer. Then, drag the clips just as you would do for a single clip; their position relative to each other will be preserved.</p>

<title>Using ripple editing while moving clips</title>
<p>While dragging clips around in the timeline, you can use the <link xref="trimming">ripple technique</link> to move the <em>following</em> clips (the clips that start after the one you're directly editing) to fill the gap.</p>
