I've been asking for this for ages. So easy to implement, but still nothing. It should include the subs track as well.

It's definitely the norm for me, at least when on Avid.

This is more of a bug but I tried to assign "Opt+U" to "Zoom Out" and when I did - nothing was happening. Then I found out that there are other commands and key combos that don't work when pressed. I also see that others are having the same issue where they assign a command and nothing happens.

So in general - keyboard customization needs a serious clean up!!

Also, I have assigned F9 to expand scopes and it only works like 30% of the time...

100% agree.

Jim’s comment about ‘breaking the norm’ is irrelevant! Just make it an option.

+1. Would make the presets way more useful IMHO, vs. having to navigate multiple menu levels.

IMHO it would be useful to allow key sequences (vs. only key combinations).

For example [ALT+S, K] (alt+s followed quickly by "k" key).

Due to the myriad actions available in DR, it's pretty easy to run out of modifiers... and I consider even 2 modifiers pretty awkward, never mind more. It's easier to type a sequence at that point.

Also sequences can give another way to organize shortcuts in a logical way. For example one could have all the Color page-specific feature shortcuts start with [ALT+C] then another key (or combo). This seems to be a fairly common paradigm in software with many possible actions with logical groupings.

I'm not sure how practical/possible it would be to do this with an external macro launcher... but possibly.

:geek: Qt already supports this (QKeySequence) in all actions/etc, as does the included shortcut editor (QKeySequenceEdit). But the DR UI shortcut editor only allows combos (effectively QShortcut) not key sequences. Hopefully using full QKeySequences internally wouldn't be a huge refactor job, if at all besides the editor, but I could see how it could be if only QShortcuts were considered in the original design.

Have you considered a Streamdeck? I use one and it works really well with Resolve.

Sure, though instead I use my Logitech keyboard with 18x3 macro keys, a Shuttle controller with more macro keys (kinda crap, may splurge on X-Keys version), and now TouchPortal app which turns my old Android tablet into a touch-screen macro launcher (I also use it to display my hardware macro key mappings because I can never remember them all). Oh and my mouse has 8 "extra" programmable buttons. :)

But what I meant above was for using the "regular" keyboard, but then be able to use key sequences and "translate" them to DR shortcuts. Using something like AutoHotkey or LuaMacros. For this to happen the macro launcher would have to intercept (handle) all key stokes first, then "send" the "translated" shortcut to the application (DR). I'm not sure whether any macro launchers work this way or if it's even possible (depending on the OS, likely).

Keyboard-only access to top-level menus (File/Edit/Trim/etc).

On MacOS I think this is already doable via OS-level features. But on Windows (and I assume Linux) it doesn't appear to be, which I was kinda shocked to realize (I assume, since I got no replies, but still hoping I'm wrong).

I realize this may seem redundant vs. assigning shortcuts directly to items within menus, but a) not all actions can be assigned shortcuts (as demonstrated by this thread) and b) using a macro launcher (or other method) one could then automate navigation through the menu tree and activate any feature that way. And of course one could also navigate menus w/out remembering all the shortcuts or using the pointer, which in some cases is quicker and/or more ergonomic. Even a quick peek into a menu to see what the assigned shortcuts are, can be very helpful. Or not having to move the mouse all the way to the top of the screen to click a small menu link only to then move it back down to select something.

It's really a very basic accessibility feature IMHO.

One thing I've found super useful in MacOs is using the shift+Command+/ key to move the focus to the help field in the menubar. Simple but effective!

for me the following shortcuts dont't work:

Multiframe left (Shift + ,)
Swap Clips towards left (Ctrl + Shift + ,)

Nudge 1 Frame works for . and , (right and left)
and both Multiframe right (Shift + .) and Swap Clips towards right (Ctrl + Shift + .) work as well.

Even pressing the non-working Key Combos in the Keyboard Customization Window works, the correct commands are shown, but they don't work when using them in the timeline.. :roll:

Could it be a keyboard layout issue? Am using a standard US Qwerty layout here and those commands seem to be working for me.

No.. the , key is working for nudge left one frame, and shift and control are working as well for other shortcuts. It's not the keyboard layout.

Ralph,

Does Shift+, equate to the semicolon in your keyboard layout?

Just as a test,
a. does invoking the menu explicitly work?
b. if you were to edit in a shortcut without Shift, does that shortcut work?
c. in the Keyboard customisation dialog, if you were to clear the shortcut and redo the same Resolve-default shortcut, does the window show Shift+, or ; or Shift+; ?

For steps b and c, does the hotkey work?

Regards
Shrinivas

Hi, yes, the "," used with SHIFT is ";" on the german keyboard loayout.

a) yes, i can use CTRL + "," to open the Preferences Window.
b) yes just using "," as a shortcut works for nudging left one frame, setting a different button shortcut without Shift works as well in the Timeline for the Multiframe Left command.
c) in Keyboard customization window pressing SHIFT +"," shows the "," and SHIFT Key like it should and the default command "Multiframe left". i deleted the shortcut and redid it with SHIFT and "," and it worked and sets SHIFT and "," in the shortcut box for Multiframe left like before.

Using the shortcut in the Timeline doesn't have any effect though.
using SHIFT and "." for Multiframe right works..
SHIFT and "." is a ":" on german keyboard layout, and that works fine in the timeline.

The new Render In Place feature is missing the ability to add a keyboard shortcut.

It's also missing from any main menu - which is perhaps the reason it's not available to make a keyboard shortcut. With regards to the main menu, logically it should appear in the Clip menu, below "New VFX Connect Clip" (matching where it appears on the right-click context menu.)
