Blender 2.80 seems such an awesome improvement that I have immediately switched to it. However, I can't find how to do something that was easy and useful in past versions. Namely, you would press S or E while hovering with the mouse over the timeline, and the current frame would become the start or end frame respectively. How can I do that now in Blender 2.80? The S key does not do that anymore. Is there maybe an icon, or menu option somewhere?

Specifically, How to make the current frame in the vse the start frame?

In the Timeline, Playback menu, Set Start frame and Set End frame buttons. If you Right-click them and assign them a shortcut, the shortcuts will also work in the VSE.

Playback menu → Set Start Frame
