Keyboard shortcut to lock/unlock tracks

Is there a keyboard shortcut to lock the current track you are on?

It would be great to be able to toggle between locked/unlocked on the current track, with a single key shortcut. Then have another toggle option to lock/unlock all tracks.[Suggestion would be the ~ key as it is at the far left of my keyboard and it doesn't seem to be used for anything else. Then Shift+~ to lock/unlock all tracks].

I'm using Cam9 (Windows 10) and I seem to waste an enormous amount of time moving the mouse over to the tracks to lock/unlock all the different tracks.

No, there are no key board short cuts available for that.

However, you can see what shortcuts are available from the "Help" menu as long as your connected to the internet.
You could print the web page for future reference as well.

See Image Below.

Definitely something that is needed

I've been requesting this since multiple tracks were added in CS8

my thoughts on this matter ...

I like your concept kayakman,
 Right click menus are handy and I'm not knocking them.

What Camtasia truly needs is LOTS OF "Programmable" Keyboard Shortcuts. I'm going to have to use the "A" word here. Adobe.

A comparison might be considered unfair because Premiere Pro has more features.

But the main point is this. If there's a feature you want to assign a keyboard shortcut too.Odds are, You Can.

I am amazed that this wasn't a feature launched with the new CS13?! It just seems like such a basic feature that is missing.
