If you want to add time between frames you can use alt-t to get the dialog box.
Otherwise you can select all the content of the timeline and drag it to the left of to the right.
If you use alt-t make sure you have the play head between the 2 frames.
hmm ok thanks.
alt-t is not working. can i access this via a certain menu?
but i actually didn't want to modify the time behaviour, I wanted to modify the spatial behaviour.
simple example: a text comes flying in from the left to the center of the stage and stops there.
if I select the end keyframe and drag the text a bit further down and playback the animation, then it comes from the left and moves to the right and down! to go to the end point.
In order to make the movement horizontal only again, I have to go to the first keyframe and drag the text further down by the same amount like at the end key frame.
This is what I want to avoid cause it can get compley if there are a lot of keyframes.
All I want to do is shift the whole animation (at all keyframes) by a certain amount e.g. to the left or to the right, top or bottom.
You can go to preferences and you should find the menu for changing or adding shortcuts. Sorry I am away from my computer and I am not sure where it is but you should find the menu and key combinations or make your own.
sorry we are still misunderstanding each other.
i don't want to modify the time behaviour, only the spatial position of the object's animation.
is that possible without moving every single keyframe's position?

i found a solution to my problem: i just packed the object into a group div and changed the position of that div. the object now changed its position on all keyframe positions.
i must admit its not an elegant solution since there is one more div produces, but at least it is doing the job for as long as I haven't found a better solution.
thanks for the help

No need to do that.
Instead, turn off Auto-keyframe mode in the Timeline (click on the red stopwatch so that it is gray in color, meaning it's disabled), and then click and drag your element on the Stage to the new location you want it to run from. All the keyframes on the element will now be offset to the new position.
Turn Auto-keyframe mode back on (click the stopwatch until it's red in color), and you'll be back to the default keyframing mode for Edge Animate.
your solution is what I try to do but I can't understand why Edge can't move ojects:
1. In the very first frame of my animation most of my objects (mainly IMGs) are deactivated (EDGE has a bug that disables ALL properties of the objects that was been deactivated).
TEST 1. I move the timeline to the first animation keyframe of the image (the object's properties become enabled). Turning OFF the AUTO-KEYFRAME mode, when I move the image Edge updates only the keyframe under the time indicator. The same happens if I move the timeline on the last keyframe of the animation. Only the final position has been updated (even if the AUTO-KEYFRAME is dedactivated
TEST 2. The very strange behavior happens when I move the timeline indicator in the middle of my animation. The controls of my object are enabled so I can select and move the object around the screen. EVEN IF THE AUTOKEYFRAME is deactivated, two new KEYFRAMES are added in the middle of my X/Y timelines.
What's my mistake?
(thanks in advance for you support)
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand they're gone. I have the same problem.
can you tell us what your problem was? What is gone?
Thanks kodedkavas. Great reply about Flash in Edge Animate thread BTW - tou don't have to enable anything in After effects. If you plan to reposition something, then just precompose your animation
The problem is that you can not move objects with applied position keyframes! if you reposition object, then it repositions just one keyframe of the position.
I filmed some footage. If you still don't understand because of the shaking of the camera, or other nonsense - I'm already downloading a screen capture software for grater conversation
Adobe Edge - glitch? 001 - YouTube (Video will be finished uploading an hour after this post is posted)
At least tell me how to do it right if I'm mistaking...
I was just searching for the answer to this problem and ended up finding a solution using symbols. Check out page 24 of the manual where they talk about creating nested animations with symbols : https://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/edge_animate_reference.pdf
Selecting all the elements we wanted to adjust and making them into symbols allowed us to move the symbol around within the frame without losing the respective keyframing of the animation.
