Some programs display “clip” or “local” time, alongside timeline time. IOW, if a 5 minute clip located at 20 minutes on the timeline, the info bar displays TWO values if the cursor is sitting 2 minutes into that song:
- a Montage (or EDL in this case, referring to the timeline) time readout shows 22:00
- a Clip (or anything “Local” to the current selection range, be it a clip or time-range) time readout shows 2:00
Both of these pieces of information are very relevant. Being able to reset the montage time ruler’s origin to the cursor, as the documentation claims we can, is at least a workaround for this MIA feature, and carusowi notes makes far more sense in real world use, regardless of why someone may have requested a far less universal or necessary feature.
The existing “Set ruler’s origin at cursor” functionality would be better termed “Offset ruler’s origin FROM cursor”. That’s what it actually does (and is the feature the original requester likely wanted, or any user who needs it would expect it to be called).
So in addition to adding the useful, necessary feature the menu/command alludes to, you might retain the requested functionality under a more accurate name/term.
