'Extend Marker' Keyboard shortcut
I miss how in FCP7 you could place a marker on a clip, scrub to the end of where you want your [sub]clip to end and then press a keyboard shortcut to extend the marker.
I also miss how you we were able to then take those markers, drop them into a new bin and they instantly became subclips for editing!
The way it is now you have to create a marker, OPT click drag it to extend it (or use the sliding glove in the markers panel) then go back mark an IN, scrub back to the end and mark an OUT, then your clip will be available for editing.
This old FCP7 feature was so money when logging long interviews. Please bring it back in Premiere!!!

Create marker regions in a flash. Yes, FCP7 broke ground with that power shortcut. As I recall it was: M to create the origin marker, then you play a section you like, and press Option- tilde to stretch the marker into a region. That was hot!
In Premiere I could see this region easily transformed into a region In-Out, or a Subclip, for those who use them.

If marking while playing, can the M key automatically create a duration span while you're still holding down the M key, and THEN pause and bring up the dialog box after releasing M? Then spacebar to play, wait till the next soundbite, and press and hold M again to create the next one. (Then we can do the "Make Subclips from Markers" that's suggested elsewhere)

Yes, any workflow that allows logging an interview using keyboard shortcuts and without stopping playback would be great.
marker-functioniality is one of the last domains where Premier takes the lead against competitors as Resolve - if the above described FCP7 extend marker functionality would be integrated into Premiere, for sure this would keep the competitiveness for some time up - all authors who have to log and mark a lot of material need this function

I agree 100%.
Option-dragging a tiny marker gets super annoying when logging lengthy interviews.
And I also second the 'instant subclip' feature!
I miss being able to lasso said markers and drag them into a bin and instantly create subclips. This was such a crucial part of my workflow that saved so much time and turned long clips into searchable, bite-sized, easily managed media.
I can't believe Adobe's been sleeping on this for this long :(
I would also like to create a marker of the current clip's duration, but in the sequence. Markers are somewhat clunky imo in PPro. Always the default color. Many clicks to change anything about them.
