Is there a 'Copy' not 'Cut' function (to create a new file)

If there is I don't see it.
Is there a copy function to copy a selection and create a new file without disturbing the original video? IOW's I want to copy short selections (1 to 10 minutes) and create separate files, AKA highlights.

Mark out the selection with the "Mark the Beginning" and "Mark the End" buttons.
Click on "Trim Unselected" button.
Then click on the "Save Video" button.

Correct. The "Save Video" button will prompt you for an output filename, but it won't let you over-write the original file.
By the way, if your marked-out highlights don't overlap, it's possible to save them as a set of files, all in one go.

VideoReDo will not allow you to overwrite the original video with the output.

But doing a traditional 'cut', removes that segment and joins the remainder part(s) of the program (eg. removing commercials), correct?

Yes.

You can also switch the UI to "Scene Mode" which works the opposite way. You mark the sections of the video you want to keep and everything else is removed. Some people find it easier to think in those terms.

Ok, good enough.
I was hoping this, I tried 4 other editing programs and their UI was poor for various reasons. Doing common edit in's & outs' and hitting 'edit' shouldn't be a hassle, but they seemed to be on many. (n)
