by Tim Young 1 year ago
Is it possible to de-activate the "Menu" button on the bottom right of a Windows keyboard It does funny things to the tracks I select in Trim Mode if I accidentally press it. Is there an Avid setting
Re: Annoying button
by Tim Young 1 year ago
I re-map the keyboard using the command palette already, but that doesn't let me modify that particular key. I wonder if there's a way to do it at a Windows level rather than within the Avid software

Migrating an edit from FCP to Avid
