I would use the word simple rather than crude, and your description sounds
as if you are using a very old version of the software. There are buttons
to jump between cues/cuts in the version I am using (1.34) |< and >| to
the left of the "In" button, and I can't even begin to figure out what you
are trying to accomplish in the last procedure you describe.
Check your zoom setting if you are having trouble seeing the graphical
display, and maybe even try resetting to defaults by deleting the .ini
The quick reference image alone is enough to get most people started, and
the only remotely difficult concept to "learn" is that a cut is "Left
click start and right click end" or "Drag" and a Cue is a single click.
Save as Split works with both cuts and cues so this is not an issue.

Not to be mean, but I didn't want you to scare anyone away from this very
useful bit of software, which I personally have found very simple to use.
