    Smart tool

    Hi

    I have smart tools tuned on. All selected. I hit trim to B-Side on keyboard - (or trim to A-Side.) Sometimes it starts by turning RED, sometimes it turns YELLOW, if you know what I mean? Why is that?

    I, for 95 % of the time want it to turn YELLOW. is there a way to have it be YELLOW as an overall default. 

    (I know i could, but would prefer not to turn off the ripple trim smart tool... Kind of defeats the purpose of the smart tool)

    a. If you turn off red trim button in smart tool then only yellow trim will be invoked as you hover over an edit point. You can assign this toggle to a keyboard shortcut 

    b. If both red & yellow trim modes are enabled in smart tool and you hover over bottom of edit then one mode is invoked, over top and it’s the other. (Might actually be bottom 2/3, top 1/3.)

    c. RTFM I’m sure there’s a lot more detail in there

    a. I didn’t read your first post properly

    b. I did read ‘why is that’ which indicated you didn’t 

    c. see b, at least, I expect. 

     

    😂😂

     

    PS actually I went back and read your post properly properly and you are correct on all counts. 

    Missed the bit about keyboard selection! My bad
