how to position a clip precisely on the timeline

I'm using CS9.1.1 and am having a really hard time adjusting the size of a clip with a transition, visually on the track.  Camtasia seems to get confused about what I'm trying to select and usually defaults to the transition.  I usually have to zoom in so there's enough of a visual distinction between the clip endpoints and the transition.  This is time consuming and tedious.  I believe the older versions gave us a panel where we could type in the clip properties for high resolution control of the clip's positioning.  I don't have that anymore.  I can only change the duration, but not the position.  How do I position my clip exactly where I need it in this version?

Try holding down the control key while you move your media around. That can solve lots of your problems.
