    Command-C Copy doesn't work in columns

    Hey there. I just upgraded to Avid Media Composer 8.3. I've been managing an online and unfortunately need to modify some start timecodes to relink to some AMA media. So, I've mounted my AMA media and have been trying to copy and paste the start timecodes onto the sequence's corresponding clips. The only annoying thing is that none of my modifier keys have been working when I've selected the text in a given column (like the Start column). I have to right-click to pull up the text context menu (copy, paste, etc) and select copy. Then I have to do the same in the sequence clip's Start column. It's very annoying and takes much longer than just being able to do this with Command-C and Command-V. Am I doing something wrong or is this just a bug?

    Having this same issue with 8.3. It has really slowed down the multigrouping process which means we cannot yet upgrade to this version.

    Good news for people with this issue. A very helpful young lady at Avid sent me this "A fix is actually being worked on at the moment for the copy/paste issue" today.Yes

    Thanks Andrew. We are planning to get it into 8.3.1. If that changes, I will let you know.
