Default Snapping to Grid

Talk about a beginners question.... I went through the manual and searched for "snap to grid" and nothing came up.. So...option two...... come here with the question... If I'm using elastic time, and I want to snap a selection to grid, what might the process be.. Do I click in the track a bit before the beginning of the measure and then tab? It seems the selected region gets unselected when I click in the track in order to prepare to tab... Sorry for the mundane here, but thank you for any help..

Default Re: Snapping to Grid

While in Grid mode, with EA engaged, select(in the edit window_ to view Warp. Find the marker you want to snap to the grid. Hold the shift key and click on the warp marker you wish to snap. As soon as you move it a little, it should snap to the grid. Holding the shift key while you do this will lock the markers on either side of the one you are moving. If you don't lock markers(using shift or by clicking on the other markers while holding the Windows key) when you move one marker, it will slide everything for the rest of the track. EA takes a little getting used to and its easy to goof so remember a these tricks for getting out of a mess. Ctrl-Z for undo. Disable EA and select REVERT(so you can start over). Create a duplicate playlist before you engage EA(this will mean you are doing your EA edits on a duplicate audio file and your original is hiding out in case you need to get back to the beginning. Or you may even decide to create another new playlist(after doing all your EA edits) so you can comp between the original track and the EA track. BTW, sometimes EA suddenly causes a warbling sound. If that happens while I am editing, I will REVERT and then start over. Also, sometimes this happens when you turn EA off and select Commit. Sometimes you can avoid that by undo and then, instead of Commit, bus the track to a new audio track and record the EA'd audio(then you can turn off EA and Revert so you don't rob system power, then mute/disable/hide the original track).
