Working with Frames

A frame displays content at a specific moment on the Stage. The order in which frames appear in the Timeline determines the order in which they appear in the document. The Timeline displays each frame in sequential order from 1 to the end of the document. As you play a document, the playhead moves through the Timeline displaying the current frame with each layer on the Stage. When you work with frames, you can select, insert, delete, and move frames in the Timeline. When you move frames in the Timeline, you can place them on the same layer or a different layer. If you want to display a specific frame in a document, you can move the playhead to the frame in the Timeline to display the frame content on the Stage. Another type of frame is called a keyframe. A keyframe defines a change in an animation or uses actions to modify a document.

Select One or More Frames

  • To select one frame, click on the frame.

    IMPORTANT If the Span Based Selection preference is turned on, clicking a frame selects the entire frame sequence between two keyframes.

  • To select multiple contiguous frames, click the first frame in the sequence, hold down Shift, and then click the last frame in the sequence.

  • To select multiple discontiguous frames, +click (Mac) or Ctrl+click (Win) the frames you want to select.
