Eric ChardMS11: Project Media menu shortcut keys?
by on Mar 4, 2012 at 6:44:57 am

If you Right Click on a clip in the Project Media window, the top menu selection is "Open In Trimmer", with the "T" underlined.

In most programs this means that "T" is the associated hotkey for that function.

However, in MS11 I haven't been able to get "T" to function as I expect. Is there some other key that needs to be pressed to make this function correctly?

Tnx.

What i always do is go to options, then to Customized Keyboard
and there you can assign any key/hotkey to any function you
desire or however you want things to work.

Ahhh, good to know VMS is keyboard configurable, THANKS!

But, just for drill I'd still like to know how they expect you access these marked functions in the popup menus (I'm assuming the 'top of the window' menus to function conventionally).

Thanks again! I gotta lotta catching up to do.

....You can also go to Options then to Customized Toolbar and
set which ever icons you want on the toolbar for further easy access.

Hmmm, is that feature (Customied Keyboard) available in Sony Vegas Movie Studio?? I see the "Customize Toolbar", but not keyboard.

Is this perhaps only for PRO users?

I'm still at a loss as to how one accesses the key functions on the menus that are pop-up, not the title bar menus. As usual, holding the ALT key plus the first letter of a title bar menu causes that menu to pop down, but what about Right Mouse Button menus???


Tnx!

Customize keyboard shortcuts appears to be a Pro-only feature. I'd like to be able to assign keyboard shortcuts for common operations (I have VMS 10), but most of the defaults are reasonable.

The underlined letter on right-click context menus is only useable once you have the context menu up. Right-click on a file (or press your keyboard's context menu key) in the explorer, then press T and you'll get the trimmer. I have the option in preferences set to open files in the trimmer on double-click (Open in trimmer instead of timeline).

Indeed, just realized that these further added features
are only available in the Pro version of Vegas.
