I agree with you Jim, the sticky edit points slow down the editing process too many times.
I filed an Feature Request for this when CS6 came out.
I was actually going to ask you to put something like this together...perfect timing!
I too agree, this sticky edit points is so clunky.
I think i second Roger's request.
Please please please. CS6 would be my favorite editing software hands down if it had this feature.
I agree, the only way Adobe will correct this horrible "feature" is if enough people fill out the feature request. If you have wound your way through the forum because of this mess then be sure to hit the link above and let Adobe know what you think.
I canreally understand why "drag and drop and mouse trim" (plus razor tool) editors might dislike Edit Point Selection functionality.
So...I dont mind if you guys do get your wish as regards making this an OPTION....but I do not want it to dissapear or get broken!
I am fine with Edit Points and have adapted to it by a simple change of how I "edit the cuts and trims". I really like my new "edit style" but admit I also get caught by it occassionally.
In that regard....I wont support your Feature Request because I am fearful that something else will get broken in the process of fulfilling your wish.... or something else will change that I have to adapt to again.
Good luck anyway.
I think too many people have wanted it for Adobe to remove it entirely. That's why the call is for the option.
