I am using Adobe Premier Elements 12 and I am having problems with the "delete and close gap" feature. It has been very sporadic in it's usage. About the only time that it works is if on the timeline you have either a video or an audio clip alone. When you have both and even if you "unlink" the two, you can try to get the feature to work, it will delete the cut portion but it will not close the gap. I have tried every scenario/setting known and have even discussed it in the PE forum. There has been no solution to it. I have had to do a work around where is cut the portion of the clip that it want, than I delete that segment and in order to close the gap I highlight the portion that I want to keep on the right hand side, I than do a "cut" of that portion, reposition my timeline indicator and do a "paste". That has been my "work around" to the non functioning "delete and close gap".
