Add 'Insert and Overwrite sequences as nests or individual clips' button to the keyboard shortcuts menu
I would like to be able to create a keyboard shortcut for the timeline button 'Insert and Overwrite sequences as nests or individual clips' which allows you to toggle nesting or not nesting your inserts and overwrites into the timeline.
This would definitely help make my timeline experience a bit easier and faster.

This might be more complicated than just using the mouse, but...
Select your timeline panel. Press tab on your keyboard 5 times. Then press spacebar to toggle "Insert and Overwrite" button on/off.
Not sure if this was common knowledge or not, but I recently discovered it. It will highlight the Add Marker button first, but you can just press tab again to move to the next icon. The spacebar will toggle on and off which ever button is highlighted.
Not exactly a direct shortcut, but it might be useful if you want to keep you hands on the keyboard.

Yes, I would like this a lot, because everyday I need to toggle between the two. I edit all the content with the keyboard only and I need to pick up the mouse just to toggle for this basic task.

Yes! Would really like to assign a shortcut to this button :)

What would really help would be the ability to drag interface icons to keys on the virtual keyboard in the keyboard customisation menu. That way, rather than needing to cater to every conceivable operation that might need a keyboard shortcut and inevitably excluding a few that some people like all of us, find essential and which others might never touch; we can just drag this button from the timeline over a key on the virtual keyboard and immediately have key command for it.

Agree, do this so much now that I wanted to shortcut it, but found it there is not one. It seems like so many things can be added as a shortcut... it seems like the timeline buttons would be one of the first, but I guess not...

This toggle would be great.
