I'm having a major issue with group clips. I cannot get the command "Next in group" or "Previous in Group" to work. No matter if it is an icon or a keyboard shortcut.
Let me get a case started....
AOL IM: avidmarianna
Case created ... # 03190608 - I couldnt reproduce it as I dont have the same OS as you.... but suport will check it out.
I've narrowed down the issue and there is a work around.
Problem: You cannot toggle a group clip in the source side if there is no sequence loaded in the record side.
Solution: Load any sequence or create a new one.
So for majority of time this is not a major issue.
