Shortcut to Select clips "other than" primary
on Feb 7, 2015 at 4:09:46 pm

Hello folks, I've been searching around the web for a shortcut to select a clip other than the primary clip.

In other words, if I have a primary clip and below it a secondary (or connected clip); How do I select the one below using a shortcut.

Thanks!

Xavier

There isn't a KB only one yet. If you hover the pointer over a clip and press C it will select it without clicking on it, but there's no way to use arrow keys or some other method that doesn't require an additional mouse/trackpad move to target a clip. Send a feedback request to add to the list. :-)

Ok thanks. At least now I know I'm not missing out what would be a very handy shortcut. My quest for virtual mouseless editing continues :)

lol Yeah, that's kinda the missing piece to that quest. You can mostly move around and select edits/trim via KB only, but it'd be nice to somehow move the little ball on the playhead up and down to target clips vertically. Feedback! ;-)

Yeah. Never quite why they added the ball when it pretty much does nothing.
