Default Moving all tracks and items to a new start point

Hi, sorry probably very basic and simple (hopefully), but I'm still on the learning curve.

How can I move all tracks and items to a new start point? Ie currently the song start point is say at 5 seconds, I want to move the start to 10 seconds so that I can insert an intro, but obviously want keep the relative positions of everything I've recorded so far.

I could group items on each individual track and then move each individual track to the new start point, but is there a way that I can select all and move them in one hit?

Cheers.

Hi

Install SWS extension
use these actions:

SWS/S&M: Insert silence (measures.beats)
SWS/S&M: Insert silence (samples)
SWS/S&M: Insert silence (seconds)

Another way is to create an empty region at the end of the project and move it to the start point.

Thanks. i actually stumbled upon a very easy way to do it. Clicked an empty space in a track, right click, Select All, then right click on an item and select Nudge/ set items and from there you can select a new start time.

so many ways in reaper

you could also make a region of the entire project [temporarily] and move that to the right and then remove the region...

Not for me, too many steps.

The fastest/easiest way is clearly SWS/S&M: Insert silence
