Allow numeric entries to work with Slip Tool
It would be great to select a clip (or multiple clips) with the slip tool, and then type in the number of frames/seconds/minutes/etc to slip the clips without altering their position on the timeline. This worked in FCP 7.
Right now, it seems the only way I can slip a clip using the slip tool is with the mouse, and that is very tedious if I need to clip a clip several minutes, and additionally, it's imprecise with the mouse.
As it functions now, if I select a clip with the slip tool and type in a numeric value, it moves the clip along the timeline, similar to as if I had just selected the clip with the selection tool.
Thanks in advance!

Voted! We need this.
almost two years later, still this basic editing functionality is missing. sigh.
This also only seems to work on one clip at a time.
