How to use the Precision Editor in ScreenFlow?

The Precision Editor in ScreenFlow is a tool that allows you to make precise edits to your video and audio clips. To use it, first, select the clip you want to edit on your timeline. Then, click on the Precision Editor icon, which is located in the top right corner of the timeline. This will open the Precision Editor window.

In the Precision Editor window, you can adjust the start and end points of your clip by dragging the yellow handles.

After you have recorded your screen or imported a video, you can access the Precision Editor by clicking on the clip in your timeline that you want to edit. Once the clip is selected, you will see a yellow border appear around it.

Then, you can either right-click on the clip and select "Show Precision Editor" from the drop-down menu, or you can go to the top menu bar, click on "Edit", and then select "Show Precision Editor". This will open the Precision Editor at the bottom of the screen, where you can make detailed adjustments to your video clip.

Why is the Precision Editor in ScreenFlow not working?
