Keyboard/mouse problems in FCP

For some odd reason, when I right click the close gap and paste options are grayed out. Control G doesn't seem to work either. I don't use many keyboard functions (I'm a very, very basic user) but J, K and L work. The right click close gap option has worked in the past.

Any idea why it might not be working now?

I'm on a Macbook Pro with an apple keyboard plugged in. I know things can get a little hinky on the laptop as opposed to a desktop.

Do I need to adjust some setting somewhere?

If it just started happening all the sudden try trashing your preferences. What version of FCP are you using?

It depends on teh context when you right click: if you are unable to close gap due to clip collisions and the like, you won't see it as an option on a right click. Have you perhaps trimmed video and still have audio that begins before the video that is linked? That will do it as well.
