    Media Composer isn't good at copy/paste editing. If you want to copy material in the sequence for use somewhere else in the sequence, here's what I'd suggest:

    1. Mark in/out around the stuff you want to copy.

    2. Press ALT+c

    Now the material you marked in step 1 is loaded into the source monitor, and you can edit it into the sequence wherever you like.

    I know that's not exactly how you want to do what you're trying to do, but that's how I'd get there.

    Media Composer 2018.12.2 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Envy 17t-j100 Quad Edition laptop, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i7 2.4GHz, 16 GB RAM, nVidia GeForce... [view my complete system specs]
