Feature Request: Go to specific time

TechSmith Support said to make this a feature request.

I'd like to be able to type in a time code so I can jump the playhead directly there. Not as part of an interaction - just for editing.

Case: I get feedback from a reviewer that there's something fishy at, say, 0:02:12. I'd like to not have to scrub around for the time, especially in a long video.

I use time captions to accomplish this; they work great as project navigators

I appreciate your reply - I saw this workaround while I was searching the support. It works as a stopgap, but it's not as simple as I'd like - I want to hit a key command, to type a time, and to jump directly to it on the timeline.

when in the project, looking at the captions tool UI, just click on a desired time value and you'll immediately go there

I think I requested this back around version 3.  Still a good idea.
