Replacing Media Files

In some cases, there may be technical problems with the files that you previously imported, or you may be using temporary files as placeholders until you receive the files that you intend to use in your project. In these situations you need to replace media files that you have previously imported. You can do this in the Audio File Importer, or by using the Quick Replace shortcuts.
