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
This is one of those things you can opt out of.
The only difference is that they added 4 commands at the Timeline level. And assigned shortcuts to them that are the same as shortcuts at the Application level. So when in the Timeline panel, that shortcut overrides the one at the Application level. I may be wrong about whether they existed before 22.5, but I don't think so. In any event, the shortcuts are what makes the difference in workflow. The shortcuts are:
Before 22.5 and the same after, at the Application level:
Paste -> Ctrl+V
Paste Insert -> Ctrl+Shift+V
Paste Attributes -> Ctrl+Alt+V
Not existing before 22.5 and added, with 2 shortcuts, in the Timeline Panel:
Paste Insert To Same Track -> Ctrl+Shift+V
Paste [Overwrite] To Same Track -> Ctrl+V
Paste Insert To Target Track -> Unassigned
Paste [Overwrite] To Target Track -> Unassigned
So, edit the keyboard shortcuts by deleting the 2 assignments for the timeline panel, save as custom, back to the old way. Or delete those 2, and add different assignments for the "Same Track" options.
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.
Thankfully this has started to pop up as the answer to this issue.
So bizzare to change a default behavior of something so integral. Fixed it for myself by adding a shortcut that will paste to same track (alt+v) and then leaving the other ctrl v alone.
As others have mentioned, using my own keyboard shortcuts, so this seems to have over ridden the shortcut file I was already using. Kind of a jerk move there Adobe.
But there is no "timeline panel" in version 2023! And no "paste to target track!"!This is really annoying!
