How to Copy/Paste to select track in Premiere Pro 2022?

In previous versions of Premiere, you could paste a clip into a specific track based on whether or not sed track was highlighted (V1, V2, V3, etc.)

 

This is no longer a thing you can do in Premiere 2022, and to be honest, it's infuriating. Barring the fact there was no reason to change this feature, how can I paste a copied clip into a certain video track?  (That isn't V1)

Assign the Paste to Target Track keyboard shortcut.

 

Paste to Target Track

This new keyboard shortcut provides the same behavior as legacy copy and paste operations. The Paste to Target Track command pastes according to the lowest targeted track(s).

Wait, actually one other problem. Whenever I paste into a targeted track, every other clip in a track above/below the paseted item will be split apart. Is there a way to stop this from happening?

I assume you want the "insert" on the targeted track (and not overwrite). Just lock the other tracks before you paste insert.

Thank you for asking this question.   This was bothering me, and still is.   Why would Premiere change this feature?

It's the same reflection I made, the old system was so convenient, i don't find any logic in changing it, especially by also removing the default keyboard command.

I solved it by creating the MAUSIC+V shortcut for Paste to target track.

I am new to Premiere Pro (relatively, compared to everyone), and I myself don't understand THIS CHANGE, I only paid attention to this feature today, and it only FEEL natural to have the copy PASTE work by default on the track selected , instead of having to go to shortcuts and modify stuff.. etc. Which is less natural.
