Still I'd like to understand. So the edit is almost finished, and I need some inserts. With FCP X, I don't have to worry about that. "w" just copies the clip in-between (there are no clips on independent, parallel tracks that don't line up anymore). In 99,9% of all cases, the cut will need to be adjusted anyway. And yes, I'd probably also want to check it right away in the timeline. I really like to type rather than to click or drag. And I like to get everywhere as fast as possible. In this case, would I type cmd 2 to activate the timeline? No. It seems faster and more intuitive to me to just move the mouse very slightly to skim to about the right time to start timeline playback - spacebar.
Please contradict me. I am here to learn something, not to give condescending advice (*I* of all people here sounded like a wisenheimer? - that really astonished me). And if you, Stu, happen to be Walter Murch, just grind me under your heels.
