          We need more info to answer you. What are you doing and how? Are you talking about the main timeline or a symbol's timeline.

          to play forward you usually use

          Main timeline:

          sym.play();

          Symbol's timeline played from main timeline

          sym.getSymbol("symName").play();

          Symbol's timeline played from another symbol's timeline:

          sym.getComposition().getStage().getSymbol("symName").play();

          Main timeline played from a symbol:

          sym.getComposition().getStage().play();

           

          You can use playReverse() to play timelines backwards but depending the structure of your timeline, it might not be practical.
