But now I have the yellow pointer for the compensated modification for the selection tool, and I have to do "ctrl" to have the classic red pointer for trim cutting. How do you not have to do "ctrl" all the time just to do classic trim cutting ?
That's really odd.. I've never heard of that. Are you sure you have the "selection" tool selected and then mouse over the end or beginning point in the clip? Tap "V" on your keyboard for the selection tool and see what happens if not. What version of Premiere are you using?
