I don't think that there is a way. There is JSFL, which may allow you to do anything, But for now, get there the slow way.

i don't know of any quick way to do that in the ide, either.
like colin mentioned, you can use the timeline's inserKeyframe(4999) method to do that with jsfl
but, in general, you should not be using that many frames in any one timeline.
I can see how this might be an issue if you were going to frame 5000 by dragging the playhead, but the scroll bar below the timeline lets you jump to anywhere in a movie in a second or two, no matter how long it is.
It is odd though that there's no "Go to frame" shortcut in the IDE. Perhaps submit a feature request?
it's easy and quick to get to frame 5000 if it already exists. but if you have a one frame timeline and you want to add a keyframe at frame 5000 (which i assume is the op's issue), it's not as quick.
The thread title and his first sentence ask two very different questions. It would be nice to know which one he's actually asking.
After reading the replies I came to a solution that works well and is a lot quicker than manually dragging the timeline. Using Run Command and .JSFL.
In notepad I pasted:
Then I saved it as a .jsfl
Then within Animate I clicked Commands Run Command and choose the jsfl file
It then creates a key frame at frame 4999 which allows for longer scrolling ahead (By default when creating a new file my Animate / Flash only lets me scroll ahead to about frame 655)
I appreciate the replies! This saves me a lot of tedious time it takes to manually drag a timeline when your animating over a long audio file.
Thanks for reporting how you solved it.
