I'm trying to create a short animation, 30 seconds long at 30 fps. I want to start my project by Inserting the end Keyframe at Frame 900 so I can see the background of the animation from beginning to end while creating the rest of the animation. But I'm not able to scroll past Frame 760 on the timeline while viewing the timeline in "Normal" mode. The scroll stops at 760 and won't go any farther. I need to view in "Tiny" mode in order to access Frame 900, but at that size, the timeline is practically useless to me. After inserting a keyframe at 900, I can then scroll to 900 while in "Normal" mode. Is this a bug or is this by design? Is there a setting I'm missing? It seems to me that I used to be able to scroll as far as I wanted in "Normal" mode, regardless of whether or not I had any keyframes inserted on the timeline.
just insert a frame at 700 or so and your timeline will extend.
For as long as I can remember Flash/Animate has always limited scrolling past the end to 500 extra frames or so. If it didn't have this limit--if it let you whizz all the way out to frame 16000--the timeline scroll thumb would be fairly useless for accessing the actual in-use part of the timeline.
Thanks much for the reply. Makes much sense and I suspect I've always inserted a frame somewhere in the earlier part of the timeline, allowing the extended scroll.
