Default shortcut needed: tab next marker/ prev marker

Can I create a shortcut to tab only to the next/prev marker? To use the num pad is no option to me.

No. There is no shortcut key for that. As there are so many shortcuts that use the keypad, you might want to consider a USB number pad for use with pro tools.

I don't get it, what do you mean with usb number pad. An extra number pad just for jump to markers? I could use Control App for that, but with 50-100 scene markers, this is not my workflow.

maybe to understand: I'd like to tab to a marker to cut regions on it, e.g. after my movie was re-cut.

You could have the Mem Loc window open, select the track(s), then use the right hand to click on markers, and the left hand to hit A, S, B etc.

To my surprise you can't shift-click in the marker ruler and tab to markers with tracks selected.

As I am already editing in the arrange, it must be a tab in the arrange itselfs. Otherwise in the ruler I tab to a marker, then hitting 100x times key to bring my cursor to the right tracks.
ayeee

Maybe I don't understand your goal, but you won't lose track selections by clicking in the mem loc window.

My list is very very long. If I would do so, I should first position it on a prominent screen as the text size is very small. Then ProTools12.5 is always loosing it's position (it's a bug), too many times I have to reopen and resize and repositioning.
Then I always have to rethink first, where I am, then searching the right text entry.

There is a command to restore the last selection(wish I could remember it for you), but back to having hundreds of markers, that's a clear case for using a full-sized keyboard(just sayin')

Maybe Slate's Batch Commander could solve this?
