anyway, back to my main confusion which is adding the ellipse to the stage and not seeing antying in the timeline section (which I though automatically added things there because I did a tutorial and in the tutorial any time you added something new to the stage it automatically added a layer to the timeline.. my timeline is blank... I image this is because I imported my existing site created with html and css but shouldn't the new thing that I add to the stage in edge animate (the ellipse) be generating a layer since it was added purely through edge animate?
Thanks for the help,
Do your static HTML elements appear in the timeline? And does the ellipse appear in the Elements panel?
If it's displayed in the Elements panel, it should also be in the timeline panel - but perhaps it's in an order you didn't expect it to be in?
