I have a few issues that I seem to find myself experiencing which is causing some frustration, so I am wondering if I am just “doing it wrong” …
When attempting to cut out a short segment in a video-- when I split the video at the playhead in the two spots, if I am not zoomed in far enough, it seems there is no way to actually select the segment I want to delete. My mouse cursor never turns to the “hand grab” icon, and so I have to zoom in several times before I can actually do this. Sometimes, this just feels tedious-- especially since zooming is “slow” (there sometimes is a 1 second delay before the timeline even changes after zooming) and also zooming in once, might not be enough to select the segment… I may have to click and try, click and try, click and try, etc… Is there a key that I can hold that will force the selection mode, and disallow the <-> stretch/trim mode?
If I press cmd-a to select all, I cannot seem to deselect all. Clicking anywhere does not deselect anything, and I have to close my project and re-open to get things deselected.
Similarly, if if I have several edits and want to move them all, there seems to be no easy way to click-drag and select multiple segments… So, if I have a lot of edits, I have to painstakingly zoom in, select, scroll, select, scroll, select, etc…
