[Jason Porthouse] "* Range tool utterly inaccurate when entering in and out points on the fly - for instance, I usually turn music tracks into secondaries so I can edit them and add dissolves - but try and mark a bar of a track using I & O in the range tool. Seemingly completely random placement. Same goes for clips in the browser."

Have to agree this is a MAJOR pet peeve. Marking I & O on the fly only marks ranges in the Primary Storyline. So if your music track is a Connected Clip (as they will be much of the time) then you're outta luck. There needs to be a way to mark IO on selected clips.

In general music editing is cumbersome in X. It's a shame with the advantage of subframe editing, but some of the current limitation of the magnetic timeline are problematic. Compounding the music edits is one work around. But then you have to "step in" to that every time you wanna edit the track. Seems clunky.

Let's hope Apple is listening to their Pro Developer Consultants. They have made great strides with each subsequent release. But it seems like it will be 10.2 or .3 before this baby is ready truly for PrimeTime.
