  Set Scissors Tool        ⌥3⃣

Change the cursor tool to Scissors. Not something I do at all. I expect I should do more editing.

Normally I am splitting regions at song-length boundaries which I do by positioning the playhead at the proper location, select ALL the tracks, and “Split at Playhead”. I also create a marker at the playhead position.

Split regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X

You can split a region in the Tracks area, and use the split segments of the region in different places in the Tracks area.

 

 Common tools – Logic Pro X

Use the Scissors tool to split regions and events, allowing individual sections to be copied, moved, or deleted.
