"...skip to the beginning of the next clip..."

Is there already a clip on the timeline that you're replacing or do you want to skip to the end of the current clip because the timeline is empty after the current clip? If the timeline is empty after the current clip, just strike Control + End and the cursor will move the next frame after the end of the current clip. Paste away.

If you have clips on the timeline already and you wish to overwrite them with a copy of the current clip that's a different situation.

Once you've copied your event, from the Edit drop down menu select Paste Repeat, you'll get a dialog box in which you can enter the number of times you'd wish it to repeat.

I have a clip in the timeline that I've chopped up into four segments with "S." Now, if I place the cursor at the beginning of the first segment I'm looking for a key that moves the cursor to the beginning of the second segment, then the third if hit again and then the fourth. With this I assume I could select and copy the first segment and then "step" to the beginning of the segment that I want to insert a copy of the first segment in front of, and hit Ctrl-V to do the insert.

Fred, Thanks for the paste-repeat tip. Didn't know about that yet.

Not directly, but Numeric Keypad + 9 moves the cursor to the next event edge and Num + 7 moves to the previous one. The selected edge is shown in red, as a sign that it can be edited directly with the number keys (10-key editing). This edge-trimming mode can be ended with ESC.

Move left/right to event edit points (including fade edges):

Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right Arrow
