Is this not default on?
If not I think it should.
Its like having no new sequence dialog box. Imo features should be default on.
If you dont want it you can always turn it of.
It is the default. But if you select 'Always Use This Choice' in the Fit Clip dialog, the Preference becomes unchecked.
Yep, that was the box I needed to check to get the dialog box. I was able to then change the option to ignore the out point, thanks.
I realize this discussion is a little dated, but I see issues with the Fit Clip dialog box appear every once in a while. I could not get the Fit Clip dialog to reset unless I trashed preferences. If you are having trouble with the Fit Clip dialog box, try trashing preferences. To do so, see this link: http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/preferences.html#change_preferences

I've struggled with this function for weeks - I couldn't figure out how to change it! Just today I spent 10 minutes tracking it down as it was driving me insane that my source clip out points were taking priority over the out point I set in the timeline. I think part of the problem lies in some of the nomenclature surrounding this feature. First of all just to find the preference, its named Fit Clip and what I'm trying to accomplish has nothing to do with "fit to fill" - fit-to-fill is a speed function, not an edit/overwrite function - but it's labeled as "Fit Clip" in preferences. Then in the resulting dialog that controls this functionality we're presented with the fit-to-fill function as well as options to control in/out point priority but with confusing descriptors 'trim' as well as 'ignore' for essentially the same functionality. Ignore is probably the most accurate of the two, but using trim here is absolutely wrong. Trim to an editor is a specific function not related to overwrite editing with in/out points (or a speed change like fit-to-fill). So why is 'trim' being used to describe what is essentially edit point priority? And why is a speed change function (albeit one induced by an overwrite edit) lumped into the same dialog?
My solution: make the fit-to-fill functionality a keyboard modifier, like option or shift while dragging from the bin or invoking the Overwrite function. Then change the nomenclature surrounding the Fit Clip dialog: remove the fit-to-fill option, remove all references to 'trim' in the dialog and rename the 4-point edit functionality to edit point priority.
