    There is a "half click" or trim on a double chainring setup, then to change gears would be a full travel of the shift lever. You didn't say if this was a double or triple front.

    I do believe it's the triple chainrings, rather than the double that have the trim.

    Allllllllll the way across, and hold it there until the chain catches. The shift from the granny to middle is the hardest one.

    I can't speak for triples, never owned one. but every double I've ever had, had the trim

    Not sure about Sora but with Shimano triples it is normal to need the second full clickstop when shifting from the granny ring to the middle ring. One good shove to the right should get the job done. After making that shift, trimming the middle ring to avoid chain rub may require shifting back to the second stop depending on where the chain is on the cassette (in the rear).
