I am having problems with the properties panel of my after effects. When you put in a keyframe for a transformation, you should be able to toggle the mouse right or left while holding down to do the transformation directly in your timeline.
However, I hit something on my keyboard and have lost this ability, so I have to go all the way up into the menu to transform anything in my after effects. I have tried reinstalling the program etc. and I can't seem to figure out the issue.
I hope this photo illustrates the problem I am talking about - I cannot edit any of the properties directly in the timeline.
Restart your machine. It ought to clear up.
it looks to me like you have closed one of the columns. Specifically the one with the numeric values for the properties. Right-click on the columns bar and put a check by the correct column (Can't remember the name right now). Another option is to expand the columns is in the icons at the bottom left corner of the timeline.
