That's correct, the trimmed portion stays at the same position as before.
You have to press arrow left, Shift+Home and delete to remove the
leading white space.
You can have the white space being ignored on export, if you wish so.
From the manual:
"Leading black space in exported track(s) or project
When exporting audio any leading blank space offset in the tracks or
project to be exported is treated as silence and appropriate leading
silence will pad the exported audio.
There is an option in Import/Export Preferences where you can turn
this off and have leading blank space ignored on Export.
• A use case for turning this off is track-based multiple export where
you have "songs" lined up one after the other on different tracks -
and in this case you probably do not want the offsets exported as long
silences at the start of "songs"."

According to my knowledge of using Audacity, or other audio editing
programs, the trim command deletes all thing outside the selected audio,
including time range, and we won't have silent time before, or end of
the selection due to trimming, but today, I select a clip from 16 second
to the end, and press CTRL+T, audacity still cut the audio outside the
selection, but keep 16 seconds silent at the start of the clip. Am I
missed something with this?
Using Audacity 2.3.3, Windows 10 64 bit, Jaws 2019. This problem occurs
when I use, or not use Jaws script for Audacity.
Any help would be appreciated.
