What are my options? I've tried working it out myself, but I can't seem to come up with anything usable...
You've essentially got that for your vertical row of clips - as only one clip in a track can play at any one time. So I can only assume you want to be playing a clip in track A, and when a clip is played in track B, it cuts off whatever was playing in track A.
Consider these set-up options. When the clip in track B plays:
Do you want the clip in track A to stop, or
Do you want track A's audio to mute (at what point would you un-mute it?)
Do you want the clip in Track A to be stopped by playing the clip in track B, then the clip in Track A plays again when clip in Track B is finished.
You need think it through, then give a bit more information on how you'd like it to function / what the purpose of the set-up is, then it might be easier to come up with a solution.
