Default Question about Clearing Unused Regions...

When you select "Select Unused Regions" then choose "Clear Selected," even though I hold the option key down, I still have to OK about 10,000 dialog boxes before it will delete the regions. Is there anyway around this nightmare?

If you are just clearing selected the bits you are throwing away are still in your hard drive. You could delete, but you still have to hold down the enter or return button. shift-control-u, shift-control-b is the key command to get there.

The other way to clear everything that is'nt being used in your session with out the thousands of "are you sure...?", is to select all of your used regions in your edit window then "compact selected." This will clear everything that is'nt being used in your session, so do this at key times in your session like the very end or before laying key parts then backing up.

One more thing, dont do this if you are using those files on other sessions that are sharing audio from the same audio folder, because those other sessions will never find those files again unless you recover them from a back up.
