I understand that the A320 and A340 have "auto trim" systems.

Would someone who flies these please explain how "auto trim"
operates. Eg Does it actually trim the aircraft? (If so,
how does it know when the aircraft is trimmed and it's time
to stop winding the little wheel?) Or does it just remove
"stick forces"?

How well does it function operationally?

Thanks.
