    Timeline "undoing" by itself?

    I have been having a strange thing happen where suddenly my timeline pops back to a previous version, as if I have hit "undo" five or ten times. I can "redo" and get back to where I was, but I don't understand what's happening. Is there a key command for "apply five undos" that I am accidentally triggering?

    Thanks!

    Re: Timeline "undoing" by itself?

    Ahh. I figured it out. User error. When I am trying to lift a clip and constrain the lift to vertical (so it doesn't move left or right on the timeline) I use command-shift. But i seem to be accidentally hitting command-z instead occassionally, and when you hold that down it just keeps undoing until you take your fingers off the keys.

    So, two follow up questions:

    #1- is there any way of simplifying that command-shift key command to just one key so I'm less likely to make that mistake (with FCP, you can constrain to vertical by just using shift)?

    And #2 - is there any way of turning off the "feature" that automatically keeps undoing if you (accidentally) hold command-z down? (I'd much rather have to hit command-z each time I want to do an undo.)

    Thank you!

    Remap the command?
