Hi Andrew -

This is an excellent series - and I've really enjoyed going through it as a refresher course as I get up to speed with CS6.

One thing: you note, rightly, that shift-JKL keys don't work to set edit points in trim mode. There is, though, an alternative, that allows you to go one frame at a time. If you hold down K and then press L you move forward one frame, and then, when you release K the edit point has shifted by that one frame. You can, obviously, do the same thing with holding K and pressing J, and can do it once or repeatedly, and the trim point will be set as soon as you release the K key.
