Why can't I see the stopwatch for automatic keyframes in the timeline in After Effects cc 2017?
It has long been removed since nobody really used it and it never worked correctly. You need to manually enable stopwatches for individual properties.
it's was actually only removed from the master switches dock (back in Ae CC 2013) but it's still there in the panel options. if you want it, you can access it and even get a polished icon as an indication it's on.
