One feature that I noticed immediately, was the ability to turn OFF the coloured Event Headers for all events on the timeline.
If you press the "hamburger button" for any video on the timeline, you will see option to turn Event Headers on/off.
Turning off now makes it easier to use Fade tools.
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.
