Sound Forge 13 Selection Length

In Sound Forge 13, when i try to mouse-drag a selection to correct an audio click, I am automatically limited to a minimum of about a tenth of a frame. In previous versions the dragging was fluid and I could select a much smaller amount. Is there a setting that I need to adjust?

Found it. It was "Quantize to Frames" under Options.

Good thinking Ray, and quick too.

Some of the 'Snapping' options can also make precise selections difficult.

Yes, definitely! The one change that really confounds me is that, with Sound Forge 4.5 you could put the cursor ON the bad click or spot, hit REPLACE, and the program would do a fix. Now, if you hit Replace with only the cursor in place nothing happens. You have to have a highlighted selection for a Replace to take place. A big deal for someone who restores old acetate recordings.
