The online documentation seems to indicate: <ctrl> +<Home> to go to the beginning of a project, and <Ctrl>+<End> to go to the end of a project ? (I found the doc with a very simple google search: kdeenlive hotkeys )

If you indeed press that, check if your keyboard is not in some kind of numerical mode: many keyboards offer different mode for the numeric-pad keys (so that you can go to numerical mode and quickly enter many numbers in a spreadsheet, or go back to the other mode and quickly use the default usage of those same keys), and a <Fn>+<some_key> (or sometimes <ctrl>+<Fn>+<some_key>) usually activates/deactivates that special mode.

  • I think you've mixed up sth. If I've understood the question correctly, the goal is to go to the clip's begin or end, not the project's begin/end.
