Default Restoring item length

Hi there, is there an action that will restore original length of item without moving it in time? There is action 'SWS: Reset item length and media offset ' but if the item is trimmed from beginning, then it will move.

Is the problem the following:
1. Add a 3 s item starting at 1 s, and ending at 4 s
2. Drag its left border to 1.5 s, item is now 2.5 s long, extending from 1.5 to 4 s
3. Run SWS: Reset item length and media offset

Now the full 3 s length item is restored, but it starts at 1.5 s, and you want it to start at 1 s where it was originally put. Is that it?

that's exactly what I mean. If item's ending is trimmed, there's no problem, it restores fine. It's just beginning behaves like you described.

Try these actions:
Item: Set item start/end to source media start/end
Item: Set item start to source media start
Item: Set item end to source media end
