correction: I meant shift-F8 to delete frames.
What do you want in the place of the remove tweened frames? You want the beginning and end of the animation at the same location, but a section of frames removed... did you want static frames in its place? Empty frames?
to clarify, i just want to shorten the animation. it's a transition in, static and then transition out.
the static part is too long, so i want to keep the motion at the beginning and end but take 200 fr out of the middle. If I just drag the end frames to the left by 200, then the static middle gets shortened by 180 or so and the transitions get shortened proportionally.
does that make sense?
I attached a sample file. The part i'm talking about is inside the symbol.

Oh ok, you were on the right track. Basically what you need to do is hold the Ctrl/Cmd key while dragging across the mutliple layers. Select the chunk you want to shorten it by using the Ctrl+drag, and then Remove Frames (by right click, menu, shortcut).
Hope that helps!
PS: select single frames is Ctrl+click instead of drag.
Jen, Thank you SO MUCH. That worked perfectly!
