[Oliver Peters] "My solution to Smart Tool is to enable all of the tool functions. Have it normally off and map ST to a hot key, so you can turn it on when you need it. Also set your settings so that it disables when you click the TC ruler. This way, one click enables any of the functions and when you go to scrub the timeline, it automatically is disengaged. Then the operation feels more or less like clicking a tool key in FCP7."

This is pretty much how I work too. I never understood why people make such a fuss about modes. What is the operational difference between modes and tools anyway? In FCP7 there's a gazillion single-purpose tools that you constantly need to switch between. Very annoying. With Avid's Smart Tool, switching between modes is pretty much transparent, and you get the benefit of a proper trim mode.
