The dark blue shaded box is the cut portion that will now be your translation reference.

6. If you need to change your cut slightly, hold down the white triangle and move it to include or exclude the necessary portion. If you need to make a significant change to the cut, click the Undo button—the left circled arrow—and repeat steps two through five.
