First- sincere apologies if i was too dumb to recognize this topic as previously answered!
I’m not getting very far with Shotcut- its posted tutorials, and ones on YouTube don’t seem to advise on how to cut chunks out of a source video, like a movie, then butt them together, and save as a new clip.
Making single cuts and saving result is easy- everything more is a big mystery to me. Lack of manual doesn’t help.
PS: all the tutorials i see seem to be for earlier versions of Shotcut- they all describe, in detail, how one first sees “New Project” forms, and how to work thru them. Not in my universe! Not only do i not see any of that, but New Project menu entry is inert. Huh?
