I've been trying different softwares and looks like I am settling for Ligthworks most probably. My only problem is that every once in a while it stops reacting to keyboard shortcuts like all of them "c" to cut, "x" to delete "ctrl+z" undo the only way for me to get that to work again is to either restart my laptop or just continue editing and I'll eventually start working again.

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know if you're using separate keyboard, but when this type of error occurs with a mouse it's usually an issue with the cable. Admittedly you don't move a keyboard as much as a mouse.

Does this just occur with Lightworks or can it also occasionally happen with other programs?

Thanks

Nop just lightworks. I can continue using the keyboard everywhere else at that same time and it happens with both both the built in and external keyboards. Am on a laptop and it's not a processing issue because I can continue editing in lightworks with no lags or slowing down

Never heard about something like this to be caused by Lightworks.

What operating system do you run?

Make sure your caps lock key isn't on by accident. Keyboard commands don't work with caps.

i would've noticed since my caps lock has a bright light but then again it isn't something that I had my eye on so I will have to check when it happens again
