I do all my offline cutting on a newish Dell laptop. Works great for my workflow. The problem is moving the timeline playhead. Generally, I plant my thumb on the track pad to move the playhead to wher

how to turn off clip auto select?

Hi, I've noticed that, in editing mode, when the timeline cursor is over a clip, it is automatically highlighted. In the same timeline, in some cases, both audio and video get highlighted, in some cas
