Summary0000393: Add a Preference for an automatic "Snap" option
DescriptionIt would sometimes be convenient to have an automatic Snap option preference. I do not know how this would really work but if someone has an idea, please note it here. Requested feature of LFOM -3/22/2020 in the forum and +1 from Andrea.
TagsNo tags attached.

Currently, as far as I know, "snapping" only works when dragging the black arrow to change the duration of clips and plugin while keeping CTRL + ALT pressed. I think it is a feature that is very useful and most cases while editing, and it should be enabled by default, while there would exist a visible icon or menu item to toggle it on/off, when while dragging *anything* in a timeline (and not only the black arrow) it would automatically snap its edges to other entities (clips, plugins, even audio tracks) edges. Most (if not all) video editing programs have this feature, and it is enabled by default.

See the forum under "UI/UX Suggestions (or please tell me how to improve usability)" for only a little help. For example: " If it was possible to enable snap at least to the current cursor position it would help a lot."
