Replied by bigred on topic Unable to drag transitions and special effects to the timeline
Bingo! I figured it was my own stupidity in not being able to make the transitions work! What I was trying to do was to 'split' an event, create a space and then try to insert the transition into the space!! naturally that didn't work; overlapping as you described allowed me to insert the transition! Again, Derek, thank you so much for your patience and perseverance in helping me over this hurdle!
