Disable evil lower auto-hiding navigation slider?

I have been a heavy SF user since v1.0 and this has been an annoyance for many years BUT I am finally at my breaking point! OK, watch the little GIF I made to see what I am talking about. I have no idea what this "feature" is called but I need it to go away. So often I bring my mouse down to the bottom of the timeline to make a quick cut and this evil little slider pops up OVER the bottom of the scrubber (golf club) and instead of splitting the clip it shoots me down the timeline! Very annoying. How in the world can I turn off this little devil?

    Other users have brought that up as well.
    The developers are considering moving that navigation bar below the red handle or perhaps at the top of the timeline instead.
    That little thing on the bottom of the scrubber is called red handle (red flag) page 96 of User Guide under Navigate with the Scrubber

    That would be a great update! Any idea when that might be implemented?

       Not sure yet but it's been one of my pet peeves as well.

    • Dan Rollins Me and CraigS  went back and forth on this and we found a temp solution that has worked for me. Changed my life. Go to system preferences under General and change "Show scroll bars" to Always. Now you will always see it but it will no longer be an issue. You must be doing what I do which is constantly scroll left and right. This should fix that. Good luck.

      Kenny Gioia Thanks for the workflow tip. The developers are aware of the UI issue and are certainly looking at UI improvements such as this.

      Kenny Gioia That is amazing, however I don't see the option under any of the SF preference screens. Do you have a screenshot? I have v10.0.6

    • Dan Rollins That's not where it is. I'm talking about system preferences for your mac. It's not in screenflow.

    • Dan Rollins Me neither. CraigS had mentioned it as a troubleshooting thing to see what was going and then I realized, that is a solution. It might bother you for the rest of the mac experience but it doesn't bother me at all. Happy to help.

     It was actually your suggestion so it was your tip.

    This work around is so good, already my editing is quicker and my cursing has decreased 🤣. I'll be excited when this is fixed in the software but I'm glad there is a temporary fix
