Thank you Dexcon. I will try that with a copy of the VEG file, in case it screws things up. I thought of that but didn't know what it would do to, for example, to spaces between audio clips, titles, etc.
It's always good to keep a backup of a veg - like many others, I update by renaming the veg file xxxx1.veg/xxxx2.veg/etc/
When using Ripple for everything, use the bottom of the 3 selections in the drop down menu. But it's important to take into account that only events that start 'on-or-after' the Ripple point will be moved. If you Ripple move a video event where an audio event starts even 1 frame earlier, the audio event will not ripple with the video.
Fear not - Ripple moves everything in my experience.
I would use the selection edit tool. Pick that, hold the mouse and draw a big box around all of the timeline events you want to move, Hit G to group them, move them, and then select/use U to ungroup ones that shouldn't be linked(or just remember that they're now grouped).
Make sure the "Lock Envelopes To Events" icon (2nd to the far right) is checked so the envelopes move along w/ the events when you slide them.
Then change the icon back to Normal Edit Tool (2 over on the left)
The 'Ripple' process is usally the easiest, but you can also use the "Select Events to End' option. Just select the first event from the desired point on one or more tracks, right-click and choose "Select Events to End' in context menu
Vegas also has an auto save function, however I prefer to back up manually. For instance 'Projectname_18.08.09a' (i.e., date and a,b,c,d, ect) Which appear sequentially in a folder
Joseph-W....Your suggestion was the one that worked best for me. I had never used that function before. Thank you for your response. I'm sure the other suggestions would work in various situations, but this one (selection edit box) was the easiest for me.
Ofcourse the suggestion of Joseph W works also...when your timeline is not too crowded or when the amount of used tracks fits your screen, otherwise it easily happens that you miss some events with the selecting tool....

If you need to see all (or at least most) of your tracks for functions such as selection, I have found it helps to use F11 and then hit it again to get back to normal.
