Snapping in the timeline
The snapping function--the magnetic attraction between two clips or to the playhead is sometimes very helpful and other times really annoying. This is how you turn it on and off.

Snapping allows clips to be"magnetized" to each other to help you snug up the clips while editing.

There are times when you do not want this. You can turn snapping on and off via the little icon on the upper right portion of the timeline. The keyboard shortcut to quickly turn this on and off is the "n" key. Think sNapping.
