I found this to be very helpful so I'm sharing. if you click on a clip and push the 'q' on the keyboard it will go to the start of that clip/picture/audio etc.... if you push 'w' while it is selected it will go to the end! it works on VT-Edit as well. Also click home to go to start of project & end to go to end.

Any other quick tips would be great.

I think you could maybe change them by editing the toaster script files but for all intents and purposes they are locked to what they are now.

How do we change the Shortcuts keys?

I'd like to have "Q" go to the beginning of a clip, "W" go to the middle of the clip and "E" go to the end of the clip.

You'd have to locate the particular ToasterScript file that sets that shortcut and edit it. I don't know if there is a ToasterScript command to go to the middle of a clip, so that would require writing a new subroutine.

It's beyond the scope of this forum, but just for completeness...

If you add a script to the user scripts folder for that section of SE, you can override the built in shortcuts by giving yours a higher priority than the original.

Then if you make a horrible mistake and want to revert back, you simply remove your script.
