Can the Source window remain selected?
on Jun 12, 2014 at 12:43:40 am

Hmmm... seems to me a few weeks ago when I was chugging through Broll to collect selects in a timeline, the interface behavior went like this - I would mark an in and out in the source window; click the period key to plop the video into the timeline; then press play and the source video would then roll on and I would mark another clip and drop into the timeline. etc.
I thought this was great as compared with FCP since I wanted the source window to remain active so that I could move on with my selections.
Now however, the behavior is mimicking FCP so that after every edit I have to manually reselect the source window and then carry on.
It's not a deal breaker, but I'm wondering if I changed something or if this was a result of a design change on the part of Adobe.

I'm interested in finding out if there's a solution for this as well, but as a workaround I make sure my keyboard shortcuts are set up to switch between panels. I believe they are final cut based shortcuts but I recommend setting 1,2,3,4 as your most commonly used panels.
It is a bit frustrating though!

Hi Doug,

[Doug Lyons] "after every edit I have to manually reselect the source window and then carry on."

Check Preferences > General and make sure that "Set Focus on Timeline when performing Insert/Overwrite edits" is unchecked.

Thanks,
Kevin

WhooHoo!!! That's it. I forgot I had experimented with changing that parameter. Thanks Kevin.
