Sorry, I've also got a little problem, every time I try to scroll anything in the timeline, instead of moving , wht it does is cut the duration and, it make a duplicated of the (item) that Im trying to move. I can post pics later on if you guys are confuse of wht IM saying.

Thx

Are you sure you're using the right tool, if you have the knife selected them it will do what you're describing.

Im using the arrow tool, but the weird part is that at soon I try to move it beside cutting the duration it duplicated the preset. I try to move it with the right click to c if it work , but no luck.

Have you managed to move your objects on the timeline properly yet. The arrow tool should just move things about, the slice tool will cut the object into two, and place the second part above the first in a separate object. The crop tool will alter the footage length. See page 34 of the program manual.
