This has been a bug / design flaw for too long now, let's get it sorted.

Reproduce problem:

  1. Hit R to activate Rate Stretch tool
  2. Drag the end of a clip to stretch it
  3. Realise it hasn't actually done anything
  4. Try again, making sure the cursor is showing it's ready, on the out point of a clip (no diagonal red line on the cursor)
  5. Drag again
  6. See nothing happens.
  7. Zoom in loads and try again
  8. Keep it held down while timeline slowly scrolls to the right because you're stupidly zoomed in and the place you want to stretch to is waaaay off screen now
  9. Keep waiting. Take a look out the window and have a brief existential crisis
  10. Zoom back out and cancel your Adobe subscription
    if you use Rate Stretch all the time like me..

 

Here's someone over a year ago raising this issue.

This is an easy fix, let's get on it. Thanks.

There's a pretty simple workaround.  match frame your clip in the timeline so it loads in the source monitor and mark an in and out in timeline and when you edit the clip into the timeline it asks if you want to  "change clip speed - fit to fill" or ignore one of the ins or outs.   

And this is not where you report bugs.   We're mostly users here with an occasional visits from adobe employees;.
