I might be crazy, but in the latest release if I copy a clip from one sequence to another, the pasted clip shows up on a non-targted track. That is if the clip is on track 1 of the source sequence and the target sequence has track 4 selected as the target, the clip pastes to track 1 instead. It's entirely possible that I'm doing something wrong, but I seem to remember that the clip should paste to the target track regardless of the source track number. Help??? TIA
Thanks...got it! I actually might try this...for now I have alt-Q as paste to target. My hand likes it more : )
Very good and helpful post Stan, thanks very much. 🙂
As someone else pointed out on this thread, you can go into Keyboard shortcuts and set 'paste to target track' as command-V and set 'paste to same track number' as command-shift-V. That should do it.
Having the exact same problem since recent upgrade.
They changed the DEFAULT paste result in 22.5:
The change adds a keyboard shortcut to paste to the targeted track, but it is unassigned.
Or to go back to the "old" way, just delete the shortcuts in the Panel -> Timeline section of the Keyboard customization: "Paste Insert To Same Track" -> Ctrl+Shift+V and Paste [Overwrite] To Same Track -> Ctrl+V.
Thanks, very helpful - this had me scratching my head when I switched to a fresh computer.
To clarify: Paste To Target Track (which is unassigned by default) seems to be the setting under the Timeline Panel shortcuts which has the old behaviour. My updated shortcuts:
How does PP determine which track the "Paste To Same Track" command works on? What does "same" refer to? (Seems arbitrary).
The "same" track is the one you copied from.
The "old" method had no options under the timeline. And the shortcuts applied to the application (PR) as a whole. So whether in the timeline or some other panel, you got the paste [overwrite]/paste insert behaviors.
With the options added under the timeline panel, shortcuts there override the shortcuts for application.And to get the paste "to same [track]" behavior, you must use a shortcut: the options in the Edit drop down still only have the paste to target track behavior.
What you have now is (which is what you may want), when in the Timeline Panel, Ctrl+V will paste [overwrite] to the targeted track and Ctrl+Shift+V will paste [overwrite] to the same track you copied from. If you are not in the Timeline Panel, you'll get the "old" shortcut behavior.
