Transitions don't adjust when clips are edited, and then can't be selected

I feel like transitions were so easy to use in the prior Camtasia version, and so difficult in Version 8. For example, I add a transition between two clips. Then I go to the first clip, and I delete a few seconds of that clip. The transition does not adjust for this deletion. Instead, it stays exactly where it was on the timeline, which means it is now fully within the 2nd clip instead of straddling the two clips. Worse, the timeline won't let me select the transition anymore (any attempt to click on it results in clicking the clip that it is sitting on), so I can't even delete it. My only option is to undo. Apparently I need to make sure that all my clips are absolutely edited perfectly before adding any transitions? This does not seem workable.

Hi Wendy,
We have definitely heard lots of feedback on transitions in v8. Here are a couple of threads on the subject that might help you out:

Both of those threads have replies from product management and developers. Please feel free to +1 or add comments if you have something different to add.
Thank you,

Wendy, perhaps try this ...

before cutting a clip joined by a transition, first remove the transition, then do the cut, then apply the transition again

it helps if you select/delete transitions at a high timeline zoom also, it sometimes helps if you click on a blank area on timeline to deselect everything first; then select the transition

the only time I've seen something similar to what you describe is when the cut occurs very close to the transition.
