OK, another full day in front of Lightworks 14.5.0.0, feeling kind of frustrated here, 60% because my footage sucks, 20% because I'm on the learning curve here (too), and 20% because I think Lightworks is problematic.

Is there a way to slip and/or slide a cut so it exactly aligns with another cut (the closest one usually) on another track, without using the mouse?

What about moving it frame by frame?

What about moving a clip along the timeline one way or the other without affecting adjacent clips/transitions? Is that a slide or a slip? How can that be done without the mouse?

Thanks

Yes, you can using the keyboard controls. Please see the series of keyboard short cut video tutorials for more on using the keyboard www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=162&Itemid=246&start=QuickStart

You can get a print out of the short cuts in this sticky www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=24&id=25384&Itemid=81

What I do: I use the mouse to unjoin the cuts in the desired way and move to trim either with the Contour Shuttle or with transport controls on the keyboard, mainly reverse/stop/forward (J K L), nudge back/forward (cursor left/right), previous/next (A S), additionally toggle unjoin/join (TAB).
It's better to travel well than to arrive...
