Ability to Set Keyboard Shortcuts for Colored or Type Markers
We use different colored or different type (chapter/comment/segmentation) markers for different reasons, but the only way to edit a marker's color or type is to double click on a default marker.
It would be much faster if we could set keyboard shortcuts to create different types or colors of markers.
This actually seems to have been fully put in Premiere. See attached screenshot.

I think this new plug-in that just came out today has the solution you're looking for! (watch the video that's linked in the post): https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638270639681590/permalink/1766467540195232
You can use "Set Colour Marker" though this unfortunately works a bit different than "Add Marker" as it won't add the marker to a selected clip (unless you use the source monitor which can be time consuming)

I can assign num pad 1 through 8 to different marker colours and they apply to the first video in the project.
When I open the second and subsequent videos in the source panel they markers do not work. I have to return to the keyboard M (default).
Only solution is to close project and start again on the second/subsequent file.
I agree with this. I have some custom macros, but they're a big PITA to set up, and don't always work. Yes, it's easy to add yellow, red, and green markers, but I'd like dedicated shortcuts for ALL the colors.
Don't even try to figure out my spaghetti code...

There are currently shortcuts to set Marker, Chapter or Flash Cue.
There are also keyboard shortcuts to set marker color.
"Set Marker Color" 1 through 8 are key bindable. You set the marker and then click the keybind and it's done. If you search the word "Marker "in the keybinds you'll find that add Chapter and Flash Cue markers are bindable keys as well (I don't see segmentation marker here though).
