The Avid keyboard is amazingly flexible. It is possible to reprogram every single key to make it fit more to your liking. In actual practice, nearly all of the keys on most editors keyboards remain the same as when they came from the factory. I tend to change the function keys at the top of the keyboard and one or two others, but here are the pre-assigned keys. We will use this diagram frequently when we talk about how to do things in the Avid world.

Though I've tried to accomodate other browsers THIS SITE IS DESIGNED FOR BEST USE WITH IE for the PC, SAFARI for the Mac, and FIREFOX for both the PC and the Mac. It also looks reasonably good on the iPhone. Lucked out on that!
