Zooming in and out is something you have to do all the time when you edit. Both for overview and to trim. Go to Edit > Keyboard shortcuts.
You can search for the shortcut you want to edit. In this case I search for zoom.
These are now set to W for zoom in and Q for zoom out.
If you press on the letter it disappears and you can setter another letter or key just by pressing it. You can remove it on the x and if you press to the right of it you can add a another key to the same keyboard shortcut.
2. Enable and Disable hotkey
Another shortcut that’s useful to have is enable. Then you can turn on/off audio and video on the fly.
3. Full screen shortcut
You can also have a shortcut to toggle full screen of any panel in the program. Just select a panel with left-click and then press your shortcut.
4. Speed up
You can speed up your timeline with the Shuttle shortcuts. This is super useful when editing speech.
Press L to speed up (standard shortcut).
And J to slow down.
5. Align hotkeys
It’s good to not have to align text by hand. By using the align shortcuts you can have it end up exactly where you want it. Precisely in the middle of the frame for example.
