On 29 June at commit dc1193a0, James changed the appearance of split lines -- that is, the boundaries between clips that butt each other -- and also the behavior of the cursor near them, to address an old complaint of Gale's, that you can't make a selection that starts at a split line, without causing the merge of clips instead.
I never felt positive about this change, thinking it a hasty solution to the problem. I developed my more careful alternative, using the TAB key, which was completed only today. Gale didn't like James' change either.
I want to persuade the team to decline this change and accept my alternative. Persuade if I can, not use my RM authority to dictate it so.
So there is not consensus yet that this appearance change will stand, and I hope you did not spend effort on updating images in the manual on the assumption that it would. I did express my doubts about the change in earlier emails, but I am sorry if I didn't make it clear enough to you.
I told you a while back that I am very time poor this fortnight - and will not have
time to properly work on the Manual until Monday 17th July at the earliest.
So no I have not started work on this apart from making a user workbool page
