    A plea for the return of true source/record mode.

    This has been posted before, but I want to bring it up again.  Way back before the advent of the Smart-Tool, if you selected "source/record mode" (default is the Y-key) it would deslect the segment tools.

    After the Smart Tool was introduced, this was changed so that was previously "segment mode" became part of "source/record mode" as far as I understand it.  But to me, source/record has alwyas meant in/out point editing.

    PLEASE bring back the abilitiy to press one button and exit all modes back to in/out point editing.

    I know there are ways to toggle the smart-tool, but that is not the same as entering into in/out editing.

    And there is a huge inconsistency in the behavior of this.  If you have selected source/record mode (Y-key) and then you undo an edit, you will exit segment mode!  You will return to true in/out point editing.  Why is this?  Is it a bug?

    If you think of segment editing as a mode, you will also see an inconsistency.  Pressing the Y-key will:

    • take you out of effect mode

    • take you out of trim mode

    • take you out of color mode

    NOT take you of segment mode



    I know there are tons of other ways to get back to in/out mode, but I miss (and still have muscle memory) of having one key that I could hit to KNOW I was back in in/out mode.


    thanks for reading!
