    Disable automatic trim mode?

    The trim editor is nice, but it is often not necessary for many cuts, in which case it is tiring to have Avid go into trim mode automatically every time I click on a edit point, use the "go to next cut" shortcut key etc.

    Is is possible - or could it be possible - to prevent MC automatically invoking trim mode, unless I expressly ask it to?

    You need to assign & use FFW/REW buttons not 'jump to next/previous cut' (which are A/S by default)

    This must be the most useful and rewarding tip I've received from the forum today - especially with the attached link that also advised to set the composer settings FF/RW option to "ignore selected tracks" Now I'm cooking on gas....

    Big thanks to TrevorA :)
