Cutting

If you would like to delete a specific section of the recording, you can achieve this using the Cut feature on the Tegrity Editor.

  • From the Editor, a list of actions will be shown in the top-left portion of the screen. The Cut action should be selected by default when first entering the Editor.

  • Click the Cut button to apply the edit.
  • A message will pop up warning you that the action cannot be undone. If you are completely sure you'd like to permanently delete the section you have chosen to cut, click OK.
