If you’re in the process of transitioning to Premiere Pro, creating a master list of the NLE’s keyboard shortcuts should be your first priority. Beyond that, it can be even more helpful to customize shortcuts that aren’t already locked down with keystrokes you know you’ll remember when the time comes.
Extending an edit via a keystroke in Final Cut Pro 7 is done by pressing the “E” key. Premiere doesn’t have its own shortcut to extend an edit yet, and as a result, some new users may not realize they can access it via shortcuts. Adobe’s Karl Soule shows you how to map your own – whether to the letter “E” or any other letter or symbol – through the app’s Keyboard Customization panel.
