Have you run into the issue of not being able to move your video from Track 1 in the Edit tab? There’s a bunch of these little things that just get in the way, but it’s really simple to solve.

By default, DaVinci Resolve has the position lock in place so you cannot move your video across tracks in the timeline. Sometimes there could be another reason for it being enabled such as someone used your software and pressed this by accident. Or even you could have pressed a keyboard shortcut that enabled this setting. Either way, here’s how to solve it:
