You have to watch the cursor in this operation as it changes. When it is in the timeline generally, it will be a four pointed figure. When next to the centre line, it becomes an upward pointing single arrow. You left click when this arrow touches the line to insert a point, then move along and repeat the action. Then you go back to the second dot and touch it with the cursor and it turns into a hand with the digit pointing up. Left click to hold and drag the point down or up. It takes a bit of practice but you soon get the hang of it.

Well at least they are trying to fix this, that has to be good.
Can you look to see if you have Internet plugins, unusual tool bars etc installed, Browser Manager, Browser Protect, Babylon have been known to cause problems.
check the installed Program and Features list.

In that case they have updated the 920 version from the 900, the option to set 50P seems to be part of your on screen menu, record mode.
I see HA1920, HG1920, HX1920, HE1920 and iFrames.
I do not see PH,
The option 1080/50P will record to 50fps
The other options 1080/50i will record to 25fps.
The “i” indicates interlacing 50 half frames = 25 fps
I have my options set to use HA1920, that will record to 25fps.
Open the screen, tap the centre of the screen, I do this twice, the recording type should show, along with other data I see 1080P. That’s if 50P is set.
I can only advise that you read the manual to find how to change recording options, recording modes, ignore references to 3D.

But equally, the Manual reference above could possibly be because YouTube and Vimeo don't accept 1440 and would convert it to a format they *do* use i.e. 1080p... But I have never used either YouTube or Vimeo, and thus will leave it to others to investigate that possibility.
Thanks for your continued efforts on this! I appreciate it!
Youtube can import the 1440P48 format "as is" without any problem:

When you’re finished editing, you can export your movie to a format that’s easy to share on YouTube™, Vimeo™ and other sites, or to a high-quality master file that can be used for broadcast outlets or archival purposes.
GoPro Studio enables you to do the following:
• Easily create GoPro-style videos using GoPro Edit Templates
• Mix, edit and add effects to any number of clips, filmed at different resolutions
and frame rates, with no visual loss of quality
• Export your GoPro Studio projects as h.264 .mp4 files at up to 1080p resolution
for sharing on YouTube or Vimeo
• Export a high-quality master file up to 4K resolution in the GoPro CineForm
format for broadcast or archival purposes
Although the above indicates you can output in h.264 mp4 (which is the GoPro native format), it also indicates that the maximum vertical format size is 1080 which rather rules out the 1440p in this particular case.
The other two formats it can produce in are Quicktime's .mov version of h.264 and .avi produced using Studio's CineForm codec. The properties for that are as follows:
VS X7 GoPro01.jpg
I converted the original you made available to both mov and avi formats, then inserted them (separately) into New Projects in VS. The first bit of bad news is that, though I had the box ticked in Preferences, I did not get a message when I inserted either clip asking if I wanted the Project Properties to match those of the clip. So that ruled out the possibility of using Share > Create Video File > Same as Project Properties. However, Same As First Clip was at least available in the case of the .avi. It was not in the case of the .mov -- but we were already well aware that VS cannot produce high def h.264 in mov format, so no real surprise there. But at least you can edit and produce a new video in VS using the Cineform .avi format.
The second bit of bad -- indeed worse -- news was that when I transferred the new avi (from VS) and the original mov clip (from Studio) to a USB stick drive, neither were available when I plugged the USB drive into my Blu-Ray player (in this case a Sony PlayStation 3). The .avi brought up an error message on the PS3 saying it was "unsupported data". And the .mov file was not even listed as being available. (And just to be clear, yes, they were in the VIDEO folder on the USB drive required by the PS3... Other formats in that folder were there and played.)
A third bit of bad news is that both the avi and mov files were approx three to four times the size of the original mp4.
I confess I haven't yet looked into how flexible Studio might be in producing a new .mp4 file with the same properties as the original, though you'd think it should be possible, given that the 1440 setting is a GoPro setting... But equally, the Manual reference above could possibly be because YouTube and Vimeo don't accept 1440 and would convert it to a format they *do* use i.e. 1080p... But I have never used either YouTube or Vimeo, and thus will leave it to others to investigate that possibility.
EDIT: I have now found that Studio will indeed allow a Custom set-up for output files after editing. So I set it to output to identical properties as the original, which it did. However, on inserting that new file into VS, it did not change the Project Properties to match, but still came up with the same "cannot be trimmed" error message as the original when I tried to use Same As First Clip...

In the meantime, I have finally found the time to download GoPro Studio (110 MB) and will play around with that. I'll report back when I have any news.

When viewing your camera, open the screen, on the face of the camera body is the "on/off" button.
To the right of that is a button marked 1080 / 50P, that switches between 25 fps and 50 P
At least that's where it is on my camera.
