We've been doing a lot of organizing and pre-editing. And before we're done, I just want to mention a few keyboard shortcuts that are particularly helpful. Some of these have already come up along the way. Some are new. So some will be review. But everyone loves keyboard shortcuts, so let's just go through them all. Some that we've already seen, but I think are great, are the ones around markers. So that's M for marker, Shift+M for next marker, if you have markers on a timeline or on a clip. Shift+Cmd+M to go to the previous marker.
You can also remove the marker, or remove all of the markers with keyboard shortcuts. If you ever need a reminder, all of your maker shortcuts are right there on the marker menu. The little rule I have here is if I look it up on the menu, I don't click the menu. I force myself then to go down and use it. So if clear selected marker is just option M, I'll go back and clear my marker that way. I'm going to undo that because I like my marker, and of course undo is Cmd+Z.
Sub clips are as simple keyboard shortcut, which is just Cmd+U. So if you don't want to go up to the menu for a sub-clip, Cmd+U. Let's go in to the Project panel, and I've got a few more that are useful. I'm going to expand it. What I'm going to show you here is surprisingly useful. Remember when we added all this metadata? Well, of course we're using the keyboard as we type, but have you ever used tab and return when you're in the Project panel? When I'm done typing a description, I can tab to log note.
And if there's something else to write, I can write it there. I can Tab to go forward to good, and I can also Shift+Tab to go the other direction. Return takes me down to the next line. This means I can be adding metadata here in the Project panel without ever touching the mouse. Just using Tab, typing into the field and then Return. I think that's really useful, because once you get into this type of work, you can go much faster if you don't have to take your hands off the keyboard
