Default Disable some of the Command Focus Keys

Hey folks-

I seem to always hit the Y key when I mean to hit the T key. Obviously, when I am trying to zoom in, I don't want to go to the beginning of the session. Very annoying. I guess I could be a better typist!

Thanks!

JG

Hey, Pro Tools isn't Photoshop, but I sure could use a magic wand.

If you are on a later version (8) use the cmmd+opt+z to restore your last selection. That at least gets you back to where you were. Does the Y key get you back to the beginning when working with TC?

Yeah it would be great if Y could be disabled. I'm sure there are a lot of users that don't need it, and accidentally pressing Y can be annoying. Same with the N key ...

This is why I rarely use command focus. There's something very pleasing about being forced to press "control" as well as the key you want, and it's just as quick, plus it stops old cack handed butter fingers like me from performing a myriad of unwanted dodgy edits, fades, selections, etc etc.
