How to stop automatic vertical scrolling
Every time I touch the video section of the editor with left mouse button down to apply an effect, trim a clip, or.... anything really, the tracks jump wildly around vertically making it oh so very difficult to find your target track / clip under the mouse. It skitters off either up or down at varying speeds frequently winding up, because of such limited real estate in the editor, applying whatever you were trying to do to the wrong clip and if you don't immediately catch the error and Ctl-Z back, well, you get a nasty surprise later on. Tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to turn this ridiculous behavior off. It's like Whack-A-Mole. I read the thread suggesting "make the video tracks vertically small"...?? That only makes the problem worse as they skitter faster. That all said, I get it for moving a clip from one place to another, but it makes little sense for anything else: The current operation for left mouse down can and certainly is being determined.
Editorially, how does anyone find this useful other than clip movement, much less make it the default behavior? Why not also support a simple spin of the mouse wheel with maybe Shift ot Ctrl held, or the up/down arrows, or a slide on a touchpad... like every other video and audio editting program on the planet?
