Deleting vs ignoring text

You can select text and choose to either delete (Mac: delete; Windows: backspace) or ignore(Mac: Command + delete; Windows: Control + backspace) media:

  • Delete will non-destructively remove both the text and associated media in the script track.


  • Ignore will strikethrough the text in your transcript and non-destructively delete the associated media in your script track. This is useful for seeing your edits in the script and if want to bring script media back into a composition later.


Deleted text will not appear in an exported text file or published page; Ignored text will appear in an exported transcription but will not appear in subtitles or published media.
