Markers do so much in Premiere, it is hard to list all the options. But here are some of my favorites:

  • Markers are always placed at the position of the playhead.
  • You can add markers in the Source Monitor or Program Monitor
  • If a clip is selected, markers are added to the clip. If not, they are added to the timeline.
  • Markers can be dragged into a new position.
  • Double-click a marker to open it for editing.
  • Markers can have titles, descriptions/transcripts and/or colors.
  • Comment markers can be exported and added to QuickTime and MP4 movies.
  • The Markers panel displays all sequence markers and enables jumping between them.


  • To set a marker, type M
  • To delete a marker, put the playhead at the marker position and type Option + M
  • To delete all markers, type Option + Cmd + M
  • To jump the playhead to the next marker, type Shift + M
  • To jump to a previous marker, type Shift + Cmd + M
