I'm going NUTS! Trim mode issue

Latest software.

Does anyone know how to turn off the feature that turns on trim mode when you hover near an edit point in the timeline?

It is driving me crazy.

Hey Michael,

You can turn off all Smart-tool edits on the left hand side of the timeline. If you turn off the Overwrite and Ripple Trim (the red cylinder and yellow cylinder respectively) you will no longer see the trim option appear on your cursor.

I use custom keybinds but I do believe that the default hotkeys to turn on and off the smart-edit tools is as follows:

Shift+a = toggle lift/overwrite segment edits
Shift+s = toggle extract/splice segment edits
Shift+d = toggle Overwrite trim edits
Shift+f = toggle Ripple trim edits

Of course you can change these hotkeys to whatever you want in the command palette+keyboard settings window.

Hope this helps!
