ZenBook Pro

If you’re coming to Adobe Premiere Pro from Final Cut Pro or another video editing application since switching to the ZenBook Pro, we want to help ease your transition. After all, it’s one thing to have an incredibly powerful laptop with discrete graphics and a big, beautiful screen, but making the most out of it is another. Here are a few of the most used keyboard shortcuts in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and how to change them.

Remapping keyboard shortcuts in Adobe Premiere Pro

Premiere Pro shortcut keys

To start, there’s a dedicated settings window for mapping out your keyboard shortcuts to exactly as you would like. Just click the Edit menu and down near the bottom you’ll find Keyboard Shortcuts. You can also access it by pressing Ctrl + Alt + K. Keys marked in purple will work throughout Adobe Premiere Pro, while those in green will only work when certain panes are active. To reassign a key, simply drag and drop the command from the lower section onto the key you wish to map to, while holding any modifier keys you want to include (such as Ctrl, Alt, and Shift). Multiple shortcuts can be assigned to the same action just by clicking to the right of the existing shortcut in the bottom-left pane.

Different layouts can be saved and loaded from the drop-down menu at the top. You can also set different shortcuts for different panes from the Commands drop-down menu, also near the top.

Remember, the ASUS ZenBook Pro is the perfect pick for those that are into video editing.  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics and a 7th. Generation Intel Core i7 processor provide an immense amount of processing power so Premiere Pro can run smoothly. Of course the 1.5 mm of key travel makes keyboard shortcuts like those above a joy to execute, and the precision touchpad makes for fluid navigation around Premiere Pro.

The icing on the cake is a discount to Adobe Creative Cloud available through the ASUS GiftBox. Visit here to learn more about the ZenBook Pro.
