Is there a way to assign hotkeys to: Jump to previous marker Jump to next marker

In the menu marker/Jump to previous marker and Jump to next marker, letters t and J are underligned to indicate a hotkey possibility I'm gessing but I can get it to work. Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ @Maxime: you should mark questions as answered if you get the help you asked for. I also recommend, that you follow a VSE Tutorial like the great one from Mikeycal Meyers to get started with Video Editing in Blender as most of your question will be answered there. $\endgroup$

You can right-click on a Menu entry like "Jump to previous marker" and select "Add Shortcut" to set one.

In the "User Preferences" (Ctrl+Alt+U) in the "Input" Tab you can search for currently assigned Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts and edit them or add new ones. But for adding new ones you'll need the RNA, therefore it's easier to directly right-click on a Menu entry you want to add a shortcut for as then Blender will add the RNA automatically.
