New actions: move cursor to the begin of selected item and move cursor to the end of selected item

As title says, would be nice to have two new inbuild actions: move cursor to the begin of selected item and move cursor to the end of selected item.

This actions might be very useful for creation custom actions that won't change time selection. Currently operations like this works only through changing time selection.

Nope, it isn't. Sounds similar, but they do different thing.

Imagine that editing cursor is placed before the selected item. Press Ctrl+] and cursor jumps to the begin of selected item. This happens because the begin of selected item is the nearest edge of item to the right from editing cursor. Then press Ctrl+] again and now cursor jumps to the end of selected item, because now, when cursor is already placed in the begin of selected item, the nearest edge to the right is the end of item.

My idea is to have an actions that will easily allow to place editing cursor to the end or to the begin of selected item no matter where editing cursor is placed.

Sorry for my bad english, if I wasn't clear enough I'll make a video for you! :)

You're right. Those actions should be modified to go to the left/right side of the item regardless of position.

Quite an easy macro if you want it now though (on windows), without losing your time selection. I mapped it to the same keys ( Ctrl-[ and Ctrl-] ):

btw you need reaper_sws.dll in Reaper/plugins for these to work (PC only).

Big thanks for a workaround, Bevosss! Great macro.

Still hope this actions will be added natively though.

Posts like this express users requesting native features instead of work arounds, and would fit right into the topic of Area Selection:

Me too, a modification to the current actions would work for me.
