How to make automatic reset of slave timer in gated mode in STM32 mcu?


I've done synchronization between 2 timers: Timer#1 is configured as a slave in gated mode, Timer#2 is configured as a master, it toggles its output compare channel, which is an input for slave timer.

The timer overview (AN4013 application note on timers) states that: "the counter clock is enabled when the trigger input (TRGI) is high. The counter stops (but is not reset) as soon as the trigger becomes low". And it works just like that: when output of master timer becomes high, slave timer starts, and when it becomes low - it stops, but notreset, which leads to undefined behaviour - after changing output from "high" to "low", line sometimes becomes low (as I need it to) and sometimes doesn't change (standing high).

So the question is, if it possible to reset slave timer on trigger becomes low?

PS: I'm using STM32F103C8T6 microcontroller
