So I got tired of both Backspace and Delete doing the "clear and close gap" function. After looking around I finally figured out that Shift+Delete would do what I want. Not needing both the Backspace and Delete key to do the same thing, I went into my keyboard customization to set "clear" to to Delete.
Lo and behold, according to the keymapping, "clear" was already set to delete. Could have fooled me, but okay. However, I cannot get the keymap to convince the rest of Premiere that yes, Delete is supposed to be "clear" and not "clear and close gap".
How can I get Premiere to believe me when I tell it that I really want a button to do the command I tell it to do?
AH HA! I had to go to "Windows" and "Timeline" for the keybinding. Awesome.
So.... what exactly do the buttons do in "Application"?
A list of keyboard shortcuts is available under the program's Edit file as well as in the appendix of my books.
Some shortcuts are unique to a particular panel or workspace. Others work universally throughout the program.
