Default resize item right edge, shifting all other items on track

Hi.

I find Reaper quite useful for creating video slideshows from still images.
One downside is that, if you want to resize an image item (so it displays for longer in the slideshow) you have to select and drag all the subsequent items on the track, move them, then lengthen the original item.

With Ripple editing-per-track on, deleting items is fine, but trying to resize item edges doesn't shift subsequent items.

Any ideas on how to lengthen in situ items on a track and have the subsequent items shift over?

Here's a GIF that demonstrates my 'issue'...

Yeah I'd love that feature also. Vegas style!!
I think similar requests have been posted in the Feature Requests Section, but haven't been taken in consideration...

I finally came up with a custom action that does what I want, in case anyone else is interested in this unusual use case ... :-)

I've associated the new action with the mouse modifier for media item left-click with a Shift-Alt modifier. So, to use, I drop a marker at the point I want the item to extend to, then hover the mouse cursor over the relevant item and click it whilst pressing Shift-Alt. All items on that track beyond the marker are shifted right, the selected item is lengthened up to the marker and then the marker is removed.

Here's the action:

Custom: Extend item under cursor to next marker, moving later items
Item: Unselect all items
Time selection: Remove time selection
Item: Select item under mouse cursor
Item navigation: Move cursor right to edge of item
Time selection: Set start point
Markers: Go to next marker/project end
Time selection: Set end point
Script: Archie_Time selection; Insert empty space at time selection in selected tracks(moving later items).lua
Item navigation: Select and move to previous item
Item navigation: Move cursor left to edge of item
Time selection: Set start point
Markers: Go to next marker/project end
Markers: Delete marker near cursor
Time selection: Set end point
Item: Move and stretch items to fit time selection

The only non-standard command is Archie's script (from ReaPack) which I have attached below
