Is there a way to highlight (and thus change) the Playhead Position...

preferably in the Timeline, without resorting to the rodent? I have tried without success to find a keyboard shortcut or be able to create a keyboard shortcut that will go there and so far am coming up empty. It would speed up a particular workflow I'm doing now where I have to place perhaps 100 titles for which I have exact timings but at the moment each time I have to click on Playhead Position with the mouse...

    Type the location time code into the Time Code Box in the Timeline.

    Make sure the timeline panel is active, then hit Ctrl+Shift+A to deselect all clips.  Then use the Number Pad to just start typing the timecode.  The timecode box will open and the typed numbers will appear.  You can use the period key (again on the NumPad) as a separator regardless of whether the timecode is drop or non-drop.  Press the Enter key (again, only on the NumPad!) to move the playhead to the typed-in timecode.  You can also make the playhead move relative to the current timecode by typing a + or - first.

     

    NB: if any clips are selected, they will move to the new timecode instead of the playhead.

    you have to be sure NumLock is ON which it doesn't default to.

     

    You can usually set that in the BIOS so it turns on by default when you boot up.

    That is exactly how it works on all of my Windows computers - so it is ON by default, upon bootup.
