Bar length remains same when trimming - how to unlock

New to the Octatrack, expect a lot of posts from me :sweat:

When I began using the OT and I would adjust the start/stop times, it used to fluidly adjust the bar length at the bottom of the edit screen. This made it easy for me to tweak files right, then set to a bar length so they play in sync.

Right now I am editing a sample, yet no matter the length it stays on 4 bars with an arrow. It is making the sample react much differently than I am waning it. Manual isn’t seeming clear, nor does google searches. How do I adjust this?

Did you try turning timestretch off?

I don’t understand, what is the question ?
You cannot trim ?
Maybe you are in Slice Mode (page Playback Setup) with no slices ?
