Correct I want to be able to snap to the start with a modifier and click, the snap point and the end like I do in Pro Tools. I know it might seem silly but I have duplicate events that sometimes it is helpful to sync to the start and others to the snap. Plus I don’t ever want to really think about if it is going to align to the snap or the start since the snap point often is placed at the bar start when recording which doesn’t seem to be something you can turn off and to compound the issue there is no way to always show the sync point other than selecting the event so the three commands are very helpful for me in Pro Tools (which shows you the sync (snap) point always with the view option turned on).
Yes, that is it! Sorry the question was vague to specific. This is what I wanted but I didn’t want to nail it down because often there are better ways of working than what I am use to and wanted to get other workflows if there were something more that could be done in Cubendo. From what I have read in the manual and gather from others it seems like Nuendo is not quite as flexible in this case but has at least a workaround (as I posted in the last post).
If it helps you can see the difference here in Pro Tools, no special 3rd party macro needed, I also included what happens if you try to move earlier then the clip/event can start in the time line and part way through you can see me unlink the edit selection from the playback selection (shift+/ you see in the video), which is like the command Cycle Follows Range Selection in the preferences and key commands. Having these unlinked doesn’t really work in Cubendo since you can’t have the range selection and the object selection tool happening at the same time like you can in Pro Tools (and Logic 8+) with the select tool and the grabber through the Smart tool.
Anyway I don’t want to complicate things too much I think through the screen videos you can see what I am after if the verbiage is confusing.
