I have ripple trim bound to Q, when I edit long dialouge for youtube I want to cut it tightly together. On PP21 I could place the playhead at the START of the clip and click Q which would delete individual frames quickly without the need of moving the mouse. In PP22 this has been removed meaning that I have to manually move the cursor each time I want to trim the clip, it has slowed down my workflow massively.
Please can this be resolved.
Sorry for the frustration. You might try using ripple delete or extract commands for tightly cutting dialog or press Q or W after shuttling via JKL to the In or Out points. I am sorry that you became reliant upon that undocumented feature that was actually at the heart of a bug. Arrgh! I know! The good news is that the team knows about the issue and is doing its best to address it. Be sure to upvote the feature request.
To avoid mouse handling, I suggest using the JKL keys to manipulate playback to move forward or reverse in slow speed or fast, or frame by frame. I hold down K and tap either J or L to advance frame by frame. I press KL or JK for slow scrubbing. I don't use the arrow keys, nor do I touch the mouse and just JKL to the in or out frame and press Q or W. With those tips in mind, I hope you can get a rote feeling for finely trimming frames before the "Q key feature" (bug) ever came along a few years ago. Note that W never worked to trim off frame by frame at the tail! Right? 🙂
If you need any coaching with JKL, please let me know.

We have added the desired functionality, Ripple trim of first frame when you are at the head of a clip, as a new shortcut - Ripple Delete Head Frame. This is in the current Premiere Pro 22.5 Beta (build 032+) available in Creative Cloud.
Back by popular demand you can ripple delete one frame at a time with your preferred keyboard shortcut. To use it, set up a Keyboard Shortcut (Option-Command-K) and search for “Ripple Delete Head Frame.” Once you have designated your KBS, position your playhead before the extraneous frames, press your chosen KBS and delete one frame at a time until you land on your ideal first frame. Try it out and let us know what you think!
