Is there a way to do just the opposite .... delay the audio ?

Yes and a must shall be to have the possibility to have project durations in decimal time (ie 5.3 seconds) in order to be accurate with a video layer of the same time. If not, the video restarts at its end.

Sorry but your suggestion do not modify the project duration. If for any reason I need a project duration of 5.3 seconds it's not possible to easily have this global duration. I must use of a lot of keyframes to prevent any overtiming of a file included as layer like a video clip.
I know that BT is not a NLE but all layers can work in 1/1000 seconds except the total duration.

Thank you for this trick but the best should be to have the duration already decimalized to prevent all these handlings.

Thank you Selina

As you said, I made some changes in my video editor ... the only problem is that I have to create a video file for each change ... it takes some time but work fine

When you say "add silence" to the audio are you talking about doing that in a NLE first and then importing into BT?

Got it. Thanks for the reply. I do have Audacity and am using SONY Movie Studio 13 & SONY Vegas Pro 14 so I should be able to accomplish this.

There's been a little bit of a learning curve going from SONY Movie Studio 13 to VEGAS PRO 14. I bought the SVP 13 when they had it on sale with being able to upgrade to 14 when it was released and that was basically the only reason I upgraded to it. I just play around with this stuff as a hobby and to post videos on my YouTube Channel.

I'm still really struggling with trying to learn BT and am utterly blown away with what everyone here is producing. I keep hoping someone will make some screen recordings of how they are creating images and bringing them into BT. I don't think I have even elevated to a complete novice yet LOL even though I have had BT for a couple of years now.
