Camtasia Editing Method

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to edit in the way Camtasia works? I find it highly

Basically, the timeline selector has two drag-able handles on either side,
allowing you to select a piece of track. Hitting the spacebar plays that
selection to verify you have the correct stuff you want to remove. Then
CTRL+X to cut it out. The timeline then snaps flush together to make it

It really limits the amount of clicking involved and I find I can edit lots
of mistakes out of a screencast very quickly.

There is a short video of this under "Cut out Mistakes" here:

If anyone knows how to do this in kdenlive, I would appreciate it.
