    Moving to next edit without entering trim mode?

    I appreciate that this is a tiny little question, but it something that would help me greatly.

    Currently when I use the A & S keys to move back or forward to the next edit point on the timeline, the edit mode changes to trim.  While I can understand why this would be a good idea a lot of the time, often I don't want to do a trim.

    Is there a way of toggling this behaviour?

    Many thanks

    I think I can say fairly accurately, that this is one of the most asked questions on these boards. The search function in the upper right hand corner will get you pretty instant answers. Google is also a great way to find answers like these here.

    In short, just map the FF and RW keys to  your interface or keyboard and then set their behavior in your Composer settings. You can set them to stop at Head, Tail or even locators.

    I would have to agree with BLKDOG on the frequency of this question.

    That is the reason I made this Tutorial some time ago......

    Hope it helps further clarify things.
