In addition to HOW you edit, you can also control WHAT you edit. To access this menu, click the small downward-pointing arrow next to the editing icons above the timeline.

Or, use these keyboard shortcuts:

Shortcut What It Does
Shift + 1 Edit both audio and video into the timeline
Shift + 2 Edit video-only into the Timeline
Shift + 3 Edit audio-only into the Timeline

NOTE: These options need to be enabled before making the edit.
