Do you mean Track > Insert Time?

How do you "insert silence"? Can you share the .ardour session file and a description how you reproduce the issue?

In a quick test with 32 tracks, insert time works fine here. So there must be an additional factor in your case (many regions, automation or..)

Yes, i do mean that.
Before doing the menu clicking i just select all tracks with strg+t. Then Track>Insert Time. I try to add 8 bars.
On the end of the Project it does work. I also tried it in the beginning of the projects, so there are no regions under the positionmarker. There it doesnt work.
So it seems maybe it is just too much to move around... There is pretty heavy processing on the Tracks. I have another installation of 6.5 and there it works.
Do you mean this file?
