Hello, there's got to be an easy way to do this but I just don't know how to. I'm wondering how to get all the tracks to line up at the same starting point. Let's say I have 4 tracks that I want to start on measure 2. How do i get them to line up without having to drag each one to the same spot?

On Keyboard, hold down Ctrl key while you mouse click on the tracks you wish to move.
The selected tracks will change color.
Let up the Ctrl key.
With mouse pointer on a selected track click & hold, and drag the tracks to their new location.
All the selected tracks will move to their exact location in the measure of
where they are going.

If you mess up, hit the UNDO button, & do it again.
Really pretty easy though, and you can build on this.... Like using "Cut & paste", "Copy & Paste", etc.
If song is "quantized", use the "Snap to Grid" and hold the mouse pointer at the beginning of one of the tracks, and note what beat of the measure it
begins at. Drag it to the same beat of the measure that it's going to.

Hope this helps...
