Duration Keyboard Command/Shortcut in Final Cut Pro

Knowing durations in Final Cut Pro is a common necessity.  From clips, to graphics, to transitions, we often need to know how long something is.  By highlighting something in the timeline and using the keyboard combination of CTRL+D, you will display the duration of the highlighted item.  To close the duration viewer, just hit return, whether you changed the duration or not.
