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 :)

Ctrl T splits the selected timeline where your marker is.
