    C for copy (withouth command/ctrl key)

    Hello,

     

    is there a way to perform copy simply by pressing C (without command key)?

    I tryed mapping the command key over the C but it still doesn't work...

    For me, it would be great to be able to copy and load the cliipboard on the source monitior with a single stroke.

    I thought it should function by simply applying the modifiers Alt and Command to C on the keybord layout but it doesn't.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Thanks,

    JDf

     

     

    P.S.: I'm working on MC 3.0.5, MacOS 10.5.5

    Why not map "Copy-to-Clipboard" to the C-button then?

    Re: C for copy (withouth command/ctrl key)

    Sorry, my post was not so clear...

     

    I do have "Copy-to-Clipboard" mapped to the "C" key. However, MC only performs "Copy-to-Clipboard" when I press Command-C, when I press C I only hear "clonk" and nothing hapens.

    Is this a problem with a system setting or an Avid setting?

    Are you able to copy to clipboard without pressing the auxiliary key (Command on Mac, Ctrl on PC)?

     

    Thanks,

    I always use ALT-CMD-C, since I have remapped almost my entire KB, and C is something else on mine.

    ALT+C is all that's needed to copy the Marked section into the Source monitor.  CMD is not needed. 

    Also, ALT+X will Extract the section from the Timeline and place it in the Source monitor and ALT+Z will Lift the section from the Timeline and place it in the Source monitor.

    Again: not if you have something different mapped to the C-key, as I do. ALT-C works with a default KB. ALT-CMD-C (ALT-CLTR-C) works on all KB settings.

    Re: C for copy (withouth command/ctrl key)

    Actually, what's weird is that when i switch from source/record and look it seems the video and audio did copy to clip board but you can hear the audio while video is frozen...being funky...

    but when you copy to the clipboard black is in the source window and audio plays...
