I’ve just upgraded to Audacity 3.1.3 (on Arch Linux) and I’m experiencing clip handles for the first time. I’ve run into trouble because I have a long project that includes small clips. I import a clip and its appears at the start of the project and want to drag it to close to the end of the project. If I zoom out sufficiently to be able to do this then it’s simply not possible to drag the clip - it always moves the clip’s boundary.
Here’s a rather poor video demonstrating the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bQW4IXeiuo
At that point the only option I have it to either zoom in far enough that I can reposition the clip, move it as far as I can, scroll across and move again until I get it where I want it (which for my project took quite a lot of scrolling), or muck around with aligning tracks to get it closer to the right place so that I can zoom in and move it the last bit in a single operation.
Am I missing something obvious here? It seems like it must be a fairly common thing to want to do but I couldn’t find anyone else reporting the problem, so maybe I am. If only one operation is going to be available when zoomed out then surely reposition clip would be the better one to have?
