Keyboard Shortcuts

These keyboard shortcuts work on the currently selected video channel transport in the Mira Explorer window.

Tip: Two or more video channel transports can be linked together (Chained) so that commands sent to one channel are also sent to the others. Not all the keyboard shortcuts support Chain control.
