Is it possible to select/drag over the waveform in an audio track to make a selection, then loop that selection?

Sonar Refugee here,

I searched the manual, and this site, but nothing found on dragging a region in an audio track to loop.

Yes, 4 steps with clicks and shift-key/number keys and you can set a loop.

But if I drag a region of audio and right-click that region, there is no "loop this section" in the drop-down.

That would make a nice feature, eh?

Or am I missing the shortcut?

Use the selection tool to drag a selection. Then press Shift+P to set a loop at this selection. Use P only to create a loop selection which is grid aligned.

The same works for selected events: select one or many events on one or many tracks and press Shift+P or P.

if you want that a loop follows automaticly your selection, use the option Ctrl+Alt+P [Loop Follows Selection] (You find this option by Mouse Right Click under the timeline)

You can also quickly zoom to a created loop using Shift+L or zooming into a selection with Shift+S. Just press z to undo the zoom and go back to the previous view.

Tip: Use Num1 and Num2 to set the play cursor to the beginning or end of a loop. With Num/ you can disable/enable a loop.

The "Transport menue" will show you all the shortcuts.Tip: The menue "View/Zoom" is also helpful.

Try it out!
