Kind of says it all. I hit SPACE (play) and as I'm running through the clip, I hit SPACE again to pause and instead it's pulling down the file menu and dinging at me. It's making me crazy. I keep having to click back on the Timeline panel just to keep it active.

Any thoughts? Why does Premiere keep losing focus on the Timeline panel?

Thanks in advance for your tips!

- Asus Laptop
- Windows 10, 64bit
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M video card
- Most current install of Premiere (CC 2015.4)
- Issue occurred in last version as well as this one
- Going out of my mind

Small update - maybe someone has a thought for me?

It seems related to hitting ALT. You hit ALT+scroll to zoom in and out of footage, but hitting ALT also invokes the Windows drop-down menus. Any thoughts on getting around this?

Thanks.

It's possible that THIS has fixed the issue:

In short, download AutoHotkey and create a script to disable the Windows Alt-menu
