Final Cut Pro's flexibility allows an editor to work with different styles of editing. You can click edit buttons on the interface, or you can use keyboard shortcuts such as F9 and F10 to make Insert and Overwrite edits. Or you can drag a clip to the Edit Overlay in the Canvas. But there's another editing style that's easy yet powerful at the same time: dragging a clip directly into the Timeline to make an edit. Once a clip is in the Timeline, you can select it, move it, or copy and paste it. You can do just about anything you need to do to manipulate the clip or sequence using the Timeline editing approach.
