    setting default timecode for sequences

    I want to set a default dropframe timecode (00;58;00;00) for my sequences, but when I go to Settings/General and try to type in the timecode with a semicolon to indicate dropframe, it won't work--it will only show the timecode with a colon.  Is there a way to set the default timecode for sequences as dropframe?  I've looked everywhere and tried everything and nothing seems to work.  Obviously it's not my keyboard as it types semicolons everywhere else . . .

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: setting default timecode for sequences

    Try typing in the code, let it go to a colon, and THEN change one of the colons to a semi-colon. That always works for me.

    That did the trick exactly; thanks!  Will update the user profile as you suggest.
