    MC2019.6 - In Frame View, dragging clip to source monitor repositions them

    Hello,

    I tend to work in frame view and I also tend to work with sequences as my source (like for instance, a string of selects). Since double-clicking these sequences would load it into the record monitor, I have for a long time simply dragged these sequences into the source side. 

    I've recently upgraded to v2019.6, and now when I drag a sequence into the source monitor, the thumbnail of the sequence repositions immediately to a spot that is in the vicinity of the source monitor itself--even if the bin is on the other side of the screen or positioned in a different monitor altogether. I then have to scroll the bin window to the location of the misplaced frame, and then drag it back. I have done this hundreds of times over the past couple days and it's driving me crazy.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Any workarounds? Is there a keyboard shortcut that will load a selected clip into the source monitor? (This would actually be awesome--but I've never thought to look for one).

    Thanks for any help.

    GAME CHANGER!

    I have "Loop Selected Clips" mapped to SHFT+A now and I can already tell I will be kicking myself for the next 10 years not learning this 10 years ago!

    Thanks!

    They need to fix it though. I don't know about others but in most cases I need the position bar to be where I had left it within the sequence, not at the beginning where "Loop Selected Clips" will make it jump to.

    But thanks for the workaround, Telegram. :)

    You're welcome.... and I had no idea the position bar was left in place, wow.Thanks.

    So, I was checking  it out and I learned something else: when I Alt + Double-click on a sequence, and it loads the Sequence in a Pop-Up Monitor (based on my Settings), I found that I can actually SEE the Source Sequence in Timeline by using "Toggle Source/Record in Timeline" tool. It NEVER occurred to me that this was possible..... and kind of better than Loop Selected Clips if you need that Position Bar in place.

    Select clip - hit Return (I'm sure this has been mentioned).
