Keyboard shortcut....

can anyone show me how to set a keyboard shortcut for fit project to timeline?
It is so handy in FCX when zoomed all the way in, hit Shift Z and you see your whole project maximised in your available timeline.
Had a quick look in the Shortcuts but cant see if it can be done.

Double-click the scroll bar button below the timeline.

Re: Keyboard shortcut....

Ha! Thanks Edward.
Would there be any way to assign that to a keyboard shortcut?

Re: Keyboard shortcut....

Edward, another issue. Thought I may as well post here.
When using Vegas explorer and previewing/ setting ins and outs in the trimmer,
you can preview in the Trimmer by single clicking a clip,
but if you dbl click the clip into the trimmer to set ins and outs, it begins to generate Peaks which locks up Vegas until complete.
I realise I could import whole folders and therefore have the peaks already generated.... after a while. But I dont want all of the clips, say just 40 out of 200 for instance.
But is there a way to turn off the Peak building in the trimmer until the clip is inserted into the timeline?

Gerald, I use my up and down arrow keys to change the size of my timeline. I use it continually, wouldn't know how to edit without it.

Re: Keyboard shortcut....

You can turn off waveforms but that would turn them off everywhere. I don't typically use the trimmer and let them generate when added.

Re: Keyboard shortcut....

Using the mouse scroll wheel is handy for zoomin in and out Of the timeline.
