    Imovie help
    I made my first movie with imovie using photos from slide shows from iphoto. I added music tracks to each slide show. Somehow I have also added a second background music by mistake. I cannot delete this background music. Under arrange music tracks it comes up as floating music. I cannot seem to delete it anyway I have tried. Any suggestions.
    Thanks

    When you pull up the 'Arrange music tracks' window, grab and place the unwanted track to the top of the list. Close that window. In the timeline window, double click the green back music background and delete it with the delete key.

    I know this sounds strange but it will not let me drag it out of the floating box. I tried dragging it to the top and also tried dragging it back to the files. I tried deleting in the box. Originally it was a double green bar at the start of the movie and I did delete it from there. But it stayed in the floating box and will not go away. Thanks for you help.

    I think you misunderstood something, so I'll try a last time. Maybe I'm also missing something in your message.

    In 'Arrange music tracks' window, you have two panes with a list of tracks. The green one will display your background songs. You click (and hold) on the song title that you want to remove in the editing window. You drag it to the top of that list and release the mouse button. You'll see a narrow blue line indicating where it will be placed. You click the OK button to return to the editing window and click on the green background so that it is encircled with a yellow border. Then press the Delete key on your keyboard once to remove that track.

    Maybe these pictures will help with the explanation. I've placed them in order of the explanation above. The order is from the upper left to the right and then down. You'll have to click on them to enlarge them.

    Thanks for your help. Finally got it fixed. Now if I can ever figure out how that sound track got where it was so I don't do it again in the future.
    Thanks
