Hi, I'm newish to Premiere Pro, my problem at the moment is that I can't get the 'Q' keyboard shortcut to work. I'm on the default keyboard settings, so it should be my Ripple Trim shortcut but I press the button when the clip I want to delete is selected and nothing happens???

Can anyone help please?

Go to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts. If when you press the Q key there, the virtual Q key doesn't highlight then that means Premiere isn't recieving the key, it's being captured by another process. Close any background processes you don't need and try it again, could be like AutoHotKey or a shortcut manager on Mac depending on your platform.

Hi David,

Sorry for this. I suspect that this function is not working because the proper tracks are not targeted in the Sequence. Click the blue boxes for Video and Audio (A1 and V1, likely) that correspond to the tracks you wish to trim at the Timeline's header—then press the Q key. Does that make sense? Let us know if it works.

 

Thanks,
Kevin
