    Keyboard Shortcuts


      Can anyone please tell me where to find a list of keyboard shortcuts in Adobe Edge Animate?  Right this minute, I'm interested in how to advance one hundredth of a second at a time forwards or backwards on the timeline.  I've tried keys like the arrow keys and period and comma keys and they don't work.  A search on the adobe website and Edge forum didn't produce an answer, and a search for information within Edge didn't come up with anything either.

          Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts and go through the list for Timeline section. Some commands are assigned, others are not- up to you if you want to assign something.


          Though I don't think the approach you want is available.

              You can add whatever you like to the ones that do not have  a shortcut.

                Also, I think it is possible to zoom into the timeline in order to get more precise moves but I am not sure about shortcuts for that.

                  Thanks for the responses.  I was blind to the shortcuts window accessible from the edit menu, but as Darrell pointed out

                  it doesn't tell you how to advance one unit of time at a time using the keyboard.  Yes, you can input an exact time in the

                  box that's between the stage and the timeline, but it seems that this essential keyboard shortcut is missing.  There's no

                  way to add a shortcut for that either.  I appreciate both of your responses.  I'm sure I'll have more questions along the

                  way, probably routinely.

                    Hi, labmedia-


                    How would you define "unit of time?"  We currently think of it as milliseconds, which makes the jump to the next unit of time kind of arbitrary.  Do we jump to the next millisecond, to the next tick in the timeline (which depends on the zoom level), or elsewhere?  Let us know what you think.


                    BTW, you can zoom in/out by highlighting the Timeline panel and pressing either - or = (no Ctrl), although those keys vary by region.

                      looks like this thread may have died but...

                      to answer the question, the "unit of time" could be defined in the preferences as a decimal or even better as a fraction of a second for those of us that are used to animating in video and flash. Fractions would give us who are used to framrates like 30fps and 24fps a little more traction. Thanks.

                        Hi, sandersd-


                        We do have a couple of ways to display in 1/30th and 1/24th of a second, although we don't support specific fps.  You can snap to these in the timeline as well.  Hope this helps!
