Community Tip - What to Do when You Hit Return By Mistake During Editing

With the support of iLok, more tips & tricks from the community,  this one is from Jamey Scott

A simple one, but one that I use at least once every day. You know how when you’re working on a section of regions and you accidentally hit the enter key which takes you to the start of the session? Well, a quick and easy way to get back to where you were is to do a quick little key combo… Cmd-opt-z (select last selection) and then option-f (center selection). Make this an instinctual response and your workday will suddenly become a lot less frustrating! :)

Mike says - This is simple but brilliant, I fall into this trap regularly and this is a neat trick to get out of it. Jamey you win this week’s Stormtrooper iLok. 

If you would like the chance to win a stormtrooper iLok courtesy of iLok then please submit it to us using the Contact Us page. Please check the content on the site before you send it in to make sure that the idea hasn’t already been covered.
