    The Ultimate Keyboard Shortcut Tutorial - The TPKS

    I have been reading so much recently about the MC Keyboard method vs the Liquid Drag & Drop method of editing.

    I could not contain myself any more and now have produced this short unofficial tutorial on what must be the ultimate keyboard shortcut to be found in MC5.

    I hope that you can understand the finer points.


    Regards,
    Douglas

    This works for me, and I can see a great use for it in my workflow, BUT...

    That has to be the most unattractive right big toe I have ever seen!

    I admit, only after the 6th finger, I figured out it was a joke!

    I guess, holding 5fingers just seemed reasonable for me :)

    ? Joke ?  I can assure you I have 10 fingers, so why do you figure 6 is a joke?

    Now if it had been 11fingers.... then I could imagine it was a joke.  Big Smile

    By the way, for those Liquid migrants who have trouble learning the MC technical terms, here is one from the Tutorial.

    The MC term "Pull out the power cord" is known in Liquid as "Drag & Drop" Sad

    Look on the bright side, Dave!

    With MC you are getting a work-out everytime you sit there and edit.

    With Liquid there is always the risk that the RSPCA* will accuse you of cruelty to mice.
