New command "Move clip to playhead"
Please add "Move clip to playhead" command, similar to one in AE or Apple Motion.
That would decrease amount of unnecessary mouse clis for a very common clip manipulations in timeline (like moving clips around).
Also, not to be confused with existing "Ripple trim to playhead" and similar. I want to move whole clip, not the cut point.

I really hope someone at adobe is reading this, dragging clips around especially if they're very small is such a massive pain in the a$$. You have to zoom in to even be able to drag it but then once you're zoomed in you can only move in incredibly small increments on the timeline.

Greetings Fellow editors,
I developed new extension: EXCALIBUR. It has "Move Clip Start/End to Playhead" command. It does what you need.
And you can assign shortcut to this command.
But it does much more than that, learn more here:

I'm just an amateur user but I agree there needs to be a way to do this. I keep thinking there must be a hotkey for this and I've looked it up multiple times because it seems so obvious that there would be a hotkey!

Move clip(s) to playhead is essential. Also stationary cursor which stays in the center of the screen. I came from the audio post world back in the day and the features Nuendo and other DAWs have over video editors is embarrassing. Adobe really needs to take a look at the key commands available when it comes to video sweetening.

Yes please Adobe - would use it all the time.

Upvote - adobe why isn't there an upvote system in this section? - this feature would save millions of hours for editors around the globe, such an oversite, please add it as soon as possible.

I have wanted this shortcut for years! A keyboard shortcut to move any clip or clips selected in the timeline to the playhead while preserving the in and out points of that clip or clips.
Would be nice to have two shortcuts. One that moves the clip to the playhead at the in point and one for the out point of the selected clip or clips. In the case of multiple clips it would be treated like one large clip and the in points and out points would translate to the in point of the first highlighted clip and the out point of the last clip in the selection.
