Remove a feature please - Double clicking media clip loses my place in a bad way

When I am editing audio and I want to add an audio point, I need to line up my mouse cursor with that tiny green line and double click. However, this goes completely wrong when I am not lined up perfectly and accidentally double click the media instead of the line.

Double clicking the media clip sends the play head all the way back to the beginning of the clip completely losing my place. 

Having to keep the mouse stable while double clicking on a tiny line is not easy. Can you change the way this works? Maybe holding shift and single clicking the audio line to add a node? Or... does anyone actually double click media to return to the beginning of the clip? Seems like double clicking should open up properties or a context menu. 

Thanks.

Camtasia 8 had better tools for timeline editing.

You simply clicked to add audio point and one was placed wherever the playhead was positioned.

There should be a keyboard shortcut. Why TechSmith won't offer them is a mystery to me.

Yes,  having the ability to have a shortcut key to add points would be a definite plus.

Totally agree that Camtasia 8 had better tools for timeline editing.

Yeah, I think I remember 8 being easier. Then the new version seemed to add some funky, less-efficient click functions and key mappings for some reason.
