Weird things premiere does that I've got used, but maybe I don't have to

I've been using premiere for long enough that I know its moods. There's a few things it does that I now understand but mostly don't. I thought it would be fun to coral those things in one post, so please add your own, or explanations or workarounds.  

 

1. Where are all the things?
Grey thumbnails - premiere just seems to have had enough of generating thumbnails and needs a bit of a lie-down.  This is because premiere gets confused with all those bins.  It's really old, so I can forgive a bit of absent-mindedness.  Solution: close all the bins except one* (*when I say solution I mean it sometimes works, if it feels like it)
This one is also responsible for...

Reveal in project  - greyed out (clip on a timeline) &

Reveal sequence in project - greyed out (or your shortcuts no longer working)
Replace with clip > from bin - greyed out

 

2. No Cigar
Changing the speed of a clip on the timeline to eg 200% creates a clip on the timeline at 197.22% or other weirdly not 200% number. (No solution)

 

3.  Monitor N@zi*

Workspaces - premiere will remember where everything is, except your bins on the other monitor. They must always go with effects on the first monitor. Always! No extra monitor for you!  *Seinfeld reference, don't ban me.
 (No solution)

4. Wave goodbye to waveforms
Some projects PR really can't be bothered generating waveforms. Or if it does they appear for a bit and then *puff* they're gone like a caribou.  Zoom in? Gorn!  Then you play the will-they-won't-they game to see if they re-appear.   
Clearing the cache seems to help for a bit, but I suspect this is down to one piece of media that premiere doesn't like - because it will happily work fine in one project but not another.  One thing I haven't tried is creating a new project and importing the old into it lock stock and barrel.

"Zoom in? Gorn!"

What does 'Gorn' mean? Or was that an absent minded error?

You know when something gets so lodged in your head that you forget that other people might not know it? 😄
