Dropping Images Into Track - They Snap to the top track instead of the one I put them in

Title sums it up. If I drag an image onto a track, it goes to the top one where I attempted to drop it in another one. After that I can move it to the track I want, but it is SUPER annoying. Is this a setting I'm missing?

If the image is a transparent png or text clip it will be placed on an overlay track, because it's likely to be keyed over a background.

That said, if you specify (via a right-click on the clip, or by using the ADD button) to Add to Sequence at cursor, it shouldn't do that, IMO.

Hi

Using Drag and Drop with  jpgs   (but see lower down) ...Are you certain that you are releasing the image ON the track concerned. Obviously it will go to a higher track (Track 2) if it is not dragged low enough. e.g. this jpg will go to Track 2...

This jpg will INSERT on Track 1 at the mouse arrow position.....

However as Borate notes...png files and Text clips (images with transparency) will NOT insert and will automatically be placed on a higher track as they are expected to be used as overlays.  However, they can  be inserted with a second drag downwards to the track concerned.
