Edit: April 18th 2011. Cursor to items edges coming soon in V4
Hi, please allow these snapping options:
Cursor to Items edges
When Clicking On The Ruler (Timeline). Done in V4 Alpha 66
Fades to Grid/Time Selection/Markers/Cursor/Items*
Cursor to Item Cues
*For items this should only work if "Snap media items to nearby media items up to _ tracks away" is enabled.
This is a mockup below, made by Mercado Negro on how this could be a optional setting in Reaper.
Here's a demo on how it would work. Click on the timeline, and the cursor snaps to the nearest item start, end, or split. Also move the marker, and it snaps as well.
This would make navigation quicker, and easier, when wanting to go directly to the items start, ending, and splits.
Enable fades to snap to markers, and cursor.

Allow for Snapping to Media Cue's (Embedded Makers)
This would be useful when receiving media with embedded markers.
Below is a demo done in Vegas, showing snapping to embedded markers.

Also Consider Snap To Samples

Threads on Sample snapping.
Edit: Snap to Samples is coming soon. Version 4 (Done in Alpha 1)
