Whenever the Out point is set PP always adds an extra frame. Whether I am using I/O points to set a range in the sequence to add media from the Source Monitor or something as simple as setting a export range for a sequence PP always adds an extra frame. In the attached pics below I am adding in 2 seconds of black video from the source window into a set I/O range in the timeline.
In pic 1 I have set the In Point. In Pic 2 I have hit the down arrow key to snap to the next edit point, then I set the Out Point. As you can see it is grabbing an extra frame beyond the CTI. If I leave it as is the black video it will overwrite 1 frame from the next clip. In pic 3, after snapping to the edit point I have to go back one frame then set the Out Point so it is where it should be.
I have tried this with different types of footage and it does the same thing for all media I have tried.
This has been doing this for a long time. Does anyone else find this irritating or do I not have a setting set right somewhere?

That's just how things work. The CTI is placed at the head of any given frame. When you snap to the next edit point, you're looking at the first frame of the new clip, not the last frame of the previous clip, so you need to back off a frame.
Or you can always select the clip and hit the Mark Selection shortcut, the / key.
Ah ha. makes sense. OOOoooooo thanks for the keyboard shortcut, didn't know about that one, a new toy for me.
