Is there a way to paste a clip from the clipboard into a gap?

I can't find the solution, maybe there isn't one.

I have copied a clip from sequence A and want to fill a gap in the timeline of sequence B. But it paste-inserts -- everything gets moved to the right. I just want to fill a gap. I have selected the "empty" space, but it still pastes the whole thing (which is longer than my gap). I don't want to set in and out points in the source monitor, etc. I just want to put whatever's in the clipboard into whatever space there is.

Thanks for any suggestions!

I don't know if there's a shortcut or not. I usually just paste on a track above and trim.

Thanks -- I do too, but sometimes there's clips above and below, and there's no "extra" room...

In that case you either create a new track or paste at the end of your timeline then trim and move.

Thanks - I also put at the end and trim then move, but I was wondering if there's some other method that's more precise and faster. Sounds like there isn't - oh well!

You would have to set an in and out point on the timeline to have the video clip fit to fill. I don't think there is a short cut method.

Thanks -- good to know I can stop searching for a shorter method...
