The interface upgrade for Premiere Pro CS6 included an updated look for certain trim tools, including the Selection tool, the Ripple tool, and the Roll tool. For some users, these icons are larger than they would like at certain zoom levels in the Timeline. Some have described that there is too much zooming in and out when performing simple trims because of the larger icons.
DSLR specialist, Philip Bloom feels the trim tools are too large, as well. His friend, “James,” (described as the English “MacGyver”) has created new icons that can be used in place of the existing ones. You can install these tool icons “at your own risk” by following instructions on Philip’s blog entitled, “Little fix to make using Premiere CS6 a little bit better!”
Take a look and see if the replacement icons might work better for your workflow.
