Imagine you click a drag a strip on the sequencer. When the strip comes in contact with another strip I think it would be useful if the stationary strip would adjust around the influence of the strip I'm dragging. Perhaps swapping places, for instance.
Another automatic adjustment I wonder about is when adjusting after making a knife cut and grabbing one of cross sections. Then when I drag that handle, if I move it as if to overlap the intersection, then the other strip would adjust it's length to compensate as you move it.
It seems at some point I saw an option for it, but I can't remember the name for it. The word "scrobble" comes to mind, but I've found nothing about it. I have a strange memory. Thanks!
