Opening and Closing the Trim Edit Window
The Trim Edit window opens when you select edit points with certain tools. You can

To open the Trim Edit window, do one of the following:
Choose Sequence > Trim Edit (or press Command-7).
The playhead jumps to the closest edit point on the lowest-numbered track with Auto

perform a roll edit.
Double-click an edit point in the Timeline with the Selection, Ripple, or Roll tool.
The Trim Edit window displays the clips surrounding the edit point. The selected tool
and the part of the edit point you clicked determine the initial state of the green bars,
which define the kind of edit you can perform. Press the U key to switch between the
Ripple Outgoing, Roll, and Ripple Incoming trimming modes.
Click an edit point or drag around one or more edit points using the Edit Selection tool.
The Trim Edit window displays the clip items adjacent to the edit points you selected. If
you selected multiple edit points, the clip items located on the topmost video track are
displayed. You can change this using the Track pop-up menu.
Double-click an edit point to
