    segment dragging in timeline annoyingly dynamic

    I recently updated to 8.9.4. There seems to be a new way that segment mode operates in the timeline by dynamically showing what will happen with your clip as you move it. I sort of see how this might be useful, but I often place my blue indicator (or a mark in or mark out) where I want to move a clip to and use that as a guide. It's impossible to do that now. I'm moving lots of clips that look fairly similar so even with showing head and tail frames of the new location it's more confusing than if I could just drag to a fixed spot that I've marked as the correct place. Is there a timeline or segment drag setting to fix this? I can't find anything about it anywhere. Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply, Marianna!

    Not sure what I upgraded from, but thanks to your attached notes I was able to figure out what I don't like is called "Live Timeline Dragging" added in version 8.5. For editors who prefer the old behavior it can be changed in timeline settings/display tab by checking "wireframe dragging"

    Hi Jessica,

    Try selecting 'Wireframe Dragging' on the Display tab of Timeline Settings. Should make it work the 'old' way.
