    You can look for that clip in the Clips section of the Timeline Index, or simply search for that clip using the Search bar in the Timeline Index.

    You’re welcome! The Timeline Index is pretty darn useful. Would be cool to have an additional “Reveal Clip in Project” option in the Browser, the opposite of “Reveal in Browser”, of course.

    and what about finding the event a clip came from. I create events for every shoot. I have a shot from an event found in Keywords – sign – and want to find that event to search other shots during that shoot. Can that be reverse looked up?

    That is the Reveal in Browser command mentioned above. Select a clip in a Project and press Shift+F. This will highlight the clip in the Browser, in whatever Event it resides in.
