Most applications reserve keyboard shortcuts for the functions that you use most often. It is really good to learn all of these as it will speed up your editing and additionally alert you to functions that the software developers and other users find important.
Some key board short cuts that I have never used but are important to editing are firstly ‘Bring to Front’ which on a Mac keyboard is Shift+Cmd+] and secondly ‘Bring Forward’ which is Cmd+]. These two shortcuts are invaluable to editing because they cut down a lot of time with having to move and arrange clips manually.
Another short cut that I haven’t used before is ‘Find’ which is Cmd+F. This is another useful short cut as it opens the view finder for you so you don’t have to navigate through the menu bar.
And lastly another keyboard short cut that I have never used before and will start using is is ‘Insert’ which is , on the keyboard. This saves time also so you don’t have to right click insert every time you want to insert a clip.
