I like to take advantage of short cut keys when I'm editing. It helps me to work faster and more efficiently. As I'm editing, I'm constantly jumping back and forth between edit points on my sequence. I would much rather use a keyboard shortcut for this, rather than using my mouse to place my playhead on a certain point in the timeline.
To do this in Avid I use the "A" and "S" keys. However, by default, Avid is set up to enter Trim Mode when you press either "A" or "S."
A few years ago, I found this helpful tutorial that shows you how to map your Avid keyboard so that you can quickly jump between edit points without moving into Trim Mode.
