    Timecode popup blocks mouse when dragging on timeline

    funkbomb Level 1

      When I'm dragging a clip, a small yellow box appears next to the mouse to tell me the timecode of the clip I'm dragging. However, it's a dead zone for the mouse, meaning if I'm trying to drag the clip to the track below, for example, the move will cancel if I try to release the clip overtop the yellow box.


      "Nickpicking," you might say, except it makes fine control over an edit incredibly difficult when you consider having to avoid a yellow box that pops up unpredictably, and let's be honest, it's the small things that can make an edit easy or tedious. In fact, if you're trying to squeeze a clip down to the track below it, your target area becomes that tiny slice of space between the top of the box and the top of the track layer.
