Because of the numbers of questions that have arisen as a result of the changes introduced in version 14, I have decided to list the differences here, in the hope that it might help someone.

First is the list of version 12.6 commands that have been dropped from version 14.0. All of the database commands have also been dropped. Note that although several useful commands appear to have been deleted, their function has been taken over by enhanced versions in 14.0.
________________________________________________
CommandDefault keyLightworks description
Align marks Trim unjoined tracks to align marks
Cue VTR from timecodeControl QCues a VTR when a timecode box has focus, place it on the clipboard
Fix clip labelAlt ISet length of primary label to clip length
Step pulldown sequenceAlt AStep through pulldown sequence to fix telecine problems
Vari-edit

Some commands have been renamed. This will affect any macros that use them.

The new command list is as follows.

Great work, jwrl.

I have the impression that programming work is still ongoing becaue the key assignment panel doesn't update correctly after a macro is newly created and inserted into the list which has been reported twice in beta forums.

May I add to your attention and possibly to be inserted into the list above:

Dropped command (currently not equally replaced):
Cue - Created cue marker with markers-dialogue closed

Possible replacements for Cue
Cue marker - Doesn't work executed in a macro (at least here)
Add/remove cue marker - opens markers-dialogue which can't be closed from within the macro when mark is created

Replaced
Uncue - replaced with - Remove Cue Marker
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

Cue and Uncue were both in my database of 294 records, but were in the console actions - the only changed commands in that group. When I was refining the list I deleted the console actions so I missed them.

The replacement for "Cue" is "Cue marker". That's apparently a different command to "Cue markers". It's described as acting differently, and uses a different keyboard shortcut.

"Slip clip" is still available on my PC.

"Vari-edit" was to my knowledge also in older versions of Lightworks identical with
"Fitt to fill". (Automatic speed adjustment is based on the ratio of the marker length in the source to the marker length in the target sequence ... with some restrictions).
