Duplicate clips in the Timeline panel
To copy clips to a new place in the Timeline, do the following:

2. Highlight the clip you want to copy and right click on it and choose “Duplicate This Clip”.
The duplicated clip will be added into the timeline next to the original clip.
You can change the order of clips by dragging and dropping them in a new location in the Timeline. Just drag and hold a clip to the right place until the place line shows. Drop the clip and it will be placed right there.
Trim clips in the Timeline panel
Put your cursor to the start or end point of a clip on Timeline until it changes to trimmer. Drag the trimmer and you can trim off unwanted starting or ending.
Delete clips in the Timeline panel
To remove clips, select one or more clips in the sequence and press “Delete”.
You can also delete selected clip(s) with right-click menu shown as below.
If you would like to split a clip into two parts, and remove one of the two, you can drag the cursor/pointer to the right place and click the Scissors button to cut off the clip. And then you can delete or rearrange order.
