How can I edit clips in Storyboard mode?

Andrew Gelman -

 

Remove a clip

To remove a clip from the Storyboard, drag it into the preview window, select the trash can icon, or press the delete key while the clip is highlighted.

Trim a clip

To trim a clip, click on the edge and drag it to shorten the clip's duration.

The number next to the clip name indicates the duration of the clip, whereas the number on the blue playhead indicates the location in the whole Storyboard. 

In the example below, 00:33.920 refers to the duration of the clip, and 00:25:05 refers to the location in the Storyboard.
