Default req: set snap offset to -(startInSourceValue) when trimming items

As it is at the moment, in order to copy a trimmed item we are not able to use snap as it would be supposed


To workaround, first we have to remove the added trim, copy it and redo trim, paste and then redo the trim in the new place! (or do what i demonstrate in next gif.)

So i suggest a mode or option or as default behaviour (... i don't know!) that when trimming:
set offset to -("start in source value") in order to be able to snap regularly.
or if you want if "start in source" is different then 0:00.000 then set offset to -("start in source value")

like this:


But automatically by reaper,

Thanks

It snaps always to the offset.. You have not set any snap offset in your gif. Your snap offset is 0.

deeb !
I understand you, you got a big point.

A solution would be:
Option in Preferences (or in Menu Options), to NOT change offset position in an Item when trimming left edge of Item.

Warm Regards.

deeb !

I missed the fact that you trimmed a looped item to the left.
So i have to nuance my answer abit i think:

Option in Preferences (or in Menu Options), to NOT change offset position in an Item when trimming left edge of Item,whether it is looped or not looped.

Regarding your answer to amagalma:
You are using the right terminology and imho your first post is very clear (to me).
So i think amagalma just misunderstood your first post and therefore his answer is not to the point.

Just my 2 cents.

Sorry, guys! I now understand what you are talking about!


Another solution would be a mouse modifier that could trim (extend) the left edge of an item, without moving the snap offset.
