So I've gone a screwed up the keyboard commands in Media Composer 6. I got carried away messing with the shortcuts. Does anyone out there know of a way to reset the keyboard to the default commands? I looked all over and can't seem to find a way. I'm sure there's got to be something simple.

Make new user settings. I think that's the only way to reset the keyboard.

In order to avoid having to start totally from scratch, you can import any setting from another users setting by doing the following

Click on the "Settings" tab in the project window.
Pull down the FILE menu and click on "Open Setting File"
Navigate to the user profiles and pick the Avid User and go into that folder and click on that user's settings.
A new window will open where you can drag any type of setting from the other user into your own settings.

Two other points; To find the user files, search for your own user file name and "open the containing folder"; Additionally you may have to create a new default user in order to obtain the default settings.

Once you get this resolved, if you want to start playing with keyboard shortcuts again just go to your settings tab, select the keyboard setting, and hit Cmd+D (Mac) or Ctrl+D (PC) to duplicate them. You can name them too, so you can have a separate keyboard setting for Color Correction, Effects, Editing, etc...

I think you can link them to workspaces too, which is awesome. Change your workspace, keyboard settings automatically change with them.

Wow. That's awesome. Thanks for the tip. I didn't realize you could duplicate your settings. This opens up all kinds of possibilities.

Hopefully you'll hate me for this.

Right click and choose "Reset keyboard to default"

Works with any setting.

Best,
