Quick Tip: Double Click

Apple has changed the effect of double-clicks with iMovie '09. In the previous version of iMovie, double-clicking would start previewing the clip from the point of the cursor. Now double-clicking will do all of the following:

1. If you double-click on the body of a clip, title, transition, map, or sound track, iMovie brings up the Inspector window.

2. If you double-click between clips (and not on a transition) in a project, iMovie shows you the precision editor for that cut.

3. Also in a project, if you double-click on the time of a clip (the little numbers on the left side of the clip), iMovie gives you the Clip Trimmer window.

4. Double-clicking on a chapter or comment marker allows you to edit the text of the marker.

If you notice any other useful changes to iMovie mouse clicks, please share them with us in the comments!
