    Disable automatic invocation of Trim Mode?

    I very rarely use the Trim mode editor and when I do, I usually select it myself. Therefore it is a constant irritaion that MC automatically changes me into Trim mode when I don't want it. FGor example, if I have the cursor over a clip and press the "Go to next edit" shortcut, the cursor moes to where I want it and the system goes automatically into trim mode. If I don't want this (which is usual) I have to manually deselect trim mode - so having this mode offered to me 100 times a day when I don't want it far outweighs few occasions when automatic invocation might be useful. Is there any way to ask MC not to do this?

    You should be aware there are two different ways to get the the next cut point. GoTo Next/Previous will take you there AND put you in trim mode, whereas traditional FFW/REW (<< / >>) wil take you to the previous/next cut point without invoking trim mode.

    go to next event, rather than go to next edit, will do what you want
