Smaller Premiere Pro CS6 trim tool icons

The interface upgrade for Premiere Pro CS6 included an updated look for certain trim tools, including the Selection tool, the Ripple tool, and the Roll tool. For some users, these icons are larger than they would like at certain zoom levels in the Timeline. Some have described that there is too much zooming in and out when performing simple trims because of the larger icons.

DSLR specialist, Philip Bloom feels the trim tools are too large, as well. His friend, “James,” (described as the English “MacGyver”) has created new icons that can be used in place of the existing ones. You can install these tool icons “at your own risk” by following instructions on Philip’s blog entitled, “Little fix to make using Premiere CS6 a little bit better!”

Take a look and see if the replacement icons might work better for your workflow.Share on Facebook

Premiere Pro CS5 & CS5.5 Keyboard Shortcuts

For Premiere Pro, the keyboard shortcuts article is typically the most popular page in the Help system. However, when we launched CS6, there were some issues with search engines not finding specific pages that were previously easy to find. The page, Default keyboard shortcuts (CS5 & CS5.5), was unfortunately one of those pages. While we search for a fix, here is a link to the current set of keyboard shortcuts for Premiere Pro CS5 & Premiere Pro CS5.5:
