Skimming in Final Cut Pro X

The Skimmer in Final Cut Pro X sometimes can be a bit distracting.  Skimming is a term for scrubbing through the timeline without having to move the playhead indicator.  If you choose, The skimming feature can be turned off.  The simple keyboard shortcut (S) will toggle the video portion of skimming on and off. 

You can also disable the audio skimming with video skimming still enabled. Use the keyboard shortcut Shift + S to disable audio skimming.   

You can also turn these on & off with the 2 Skimming buttons found in the upper right hand corner of the Timeline.

The same applies with turning off the audio skimmer.  It is also important to note that even with skimming turned off, certain tools such as the Blade, Range, and Trim tools will still allow you to skim inside the Precision Editor.  Skimming with these tools cannot be turned off when these tools are in use.
