Nudging notes/syllables within a waveform slightly to make them line up with the music beat?

Sometimes a singer doesn't sing certain notes right on time to the beat.  I feel like I remember that you can kind of click and drag on the waveform to manually move/nudge parts of the audio forward or backward in time, without cutting and making separate clips.  Did I dream that?  Is it a feature on some other piece of software like Audacity or GarageBand but not Audition?  I'm not talking about clip stretching where the entire clip is retimed--I just want to move certain notes/syllables slightly so that they fall into the right place where i want them on the timeline without affecting the timing of the rest of the clip. I've spent way too long searching Google and various forums for the feature, so either it doesn't actually exist, or I just have no idea what search terms to use.  Help?

You didn't dream it, but it's not possible like that on Audition. Audition can match one vocal performance to another (think replacement dialogue, aka ADR) but you can't nudge this manually. The software that does allow manual manipulation is Melodyne - it's a specialist job, and that's its primary reason for existing. And it does it exceedingly well...

Darn. 😞  It does seem weird (and disappointing) to me that Audition is capable of doing exactly what I'm trying to accomplish, but only in an automated way, not manually.  It can take that same syllable and nudge it half a second to the right if *IT* thinks it's a good idea, but not if *I* think it's a good idea. The necessary technology obviously exists within Audition to do what I want to do, but Adobe doesn't want to give its users control over it for some reason.
