I use the goto next marker keyboard command, and oftent the playhead will be at the edge of the timeline....which is not what I need.

 

How can I center the timeline on the playhead after I hit goto next marker?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

It's a matter of zoom . If you're zoomed enough it works fine.

We are not talking the same language. "works fine"? no....I need to stay at my current zoom level and also keypress to the next marker so I can make an edit AT that zoom level.

Zoom (the timeline, not your media) in or out and then back to your original zoom and it will center it.

Hello,
I've jut found your post, and I'm asking for excatly the same feature:
- Just a shortcut to center the playhead on the timeline when it's reaching the edges. And I don't want tu use 'smooth scroll' option. But it does not seem to exist yet. Adobe, please, that would be simple to add that, otherwise, as mentionned, we need to press 2 keys...

I wish this were a feature as well...I'm surprised it's not already a feature in Premiere. Seems like an extremely basic and necessary thing. There's the option of toggling on "Smooth Scroll" in Timeline settings, which just makes the timeline ALWAYS centered on the playhead. The result is it looks like the playhead stays fixed in the center of your timeline, while your timeline is the thing that scrolls instead. It's extremely nauseating and I couldn't imagine trying to actually work with that mode.

 

The closest solution I've found is just holding Shift and scrolling my mouse wheel up/down as needed. Not sure if that will help with your situation, since you're potentially dealing with very large distances between markers where it wouldn't be practical to scroll.
