With the version 7, it was easy to split the timeline with the shortcut S but now with the version 8, you can only use it once :(
For instance, on your video, you put the timeline at 00:00:10 and press S (Ok it works) then you put the timeline at 00:00:15 and press S (nothing !)
There you must click on the icon to slipt your video, it's a desgression.
But More, once you remove the part you have cut, the rest of the video don't go automatically to the previous cluster. Now, you must do this action manually :( :( :(

you must select the media on timeline [on all tracks] that you want a split to apply to; make multiple selects with ctl key, or with mouse by a vertical drag

to pull remaining video objects to left after a cut to fill the cut area hole, use select then ctl-X to cut out stuff, or, if a hole already exists, select across the hole, then use ctl-X

Hi Frederic,

If you want a way to split without having to re-click on the media every time, you can use Ctrl+Shift+S to "split all" (but beware, it will split everything under the playhead)

Here's another quick way to select the part you want to cut: use the timeline range selector, then cut (this will remove the gap and shift everything over to the left, we call it "ripple", as described in kayakman's post). see the image
