Anyone thought about adding some of these most used shortcuts to a Tourbox Profile? PLEASE!

I couldn't find this program; I could only find a program called TourBox Console. I cannot reach it's shortcuts neither.

I'm going to add if you point me to a list or send me the list at https://defkey.com/contact/suggest-shortcut

Keys for the different power tools (Reverse, Crop&Zoom, Speed, Rotation, etc) would convince me to purchase a 365 subscription in itself. I would save enough time in my workday to warrant this running expense.

Add new captions?

A shortcut for the "split timeline" key would be nice :)
? Guest says in reply to tony : 4 years ago 6/26/2020 5:33 PM
Ctrl T splits the selected timeline where your marker is.
