Shortening one clip lengthens the adjacent clip
Using SF 9.0.7 on my MBP and iMac (can't upgrade yet to SF10 because my iMac is running Mojave to allow use of older 32 bit apps I need for work).
The problem: if I click on the front end of a clip to manually shorten it by dragging to the right, the adjacent clip on the left lengthens automatically in lock-step, rather than leaving a blank space (which I want). By contrast, if I manually shorten the clip via its end, the adjacent clip to the right retains its established length. Perhaps I'm making this shortening process more cumbersome. However, I don't recall ever seeing this automatic lengthening of a clip. Appreciate any clarification or suggestions. thanks

I'm not sure I understand this. If you haven't seen it before and ScreenFlow hasn't changed, perhaps there's an issue with the document.
You'd have to provide a recording showing what you're doing. You could be rippling rather than grabbing the end of the clip.
Thanks Craig. Now I see the problem. I don't recall seeing the rippling symbol on a clip in other videos I've created. If I shorten the clip from the bottom left or right of the clip, behavior is as expected. From the upper left or right where the symbol appears, then the behavior I mentioned in my original post occurs. Is such feature something I inadvertently activated or is it standard?

Standard. It's under rolling edits actually in the user guide Page 140 I believe.
Standard but not well documented in the user guide so it's possible to come upon it by accident.
That would include version 10?
