## "Go to time" subtraction relative time doesn't works

Sep 18, 2020

To navigate with precision on the timeline, we can use "Go To Time" and type how much relative time do you want to add.

For example : "+3." from "0;0;10;12" return "0;0;13;12"

Unfortunlay, that not works correctly with the subtraction.

When you do that, AE subtract the time from the begin of the timeline, not from the current time code.

"-3." from "0;0;10;12" return "-0;0;3;12" not "-0;0;7;12"

How to fix that ?

Hi after some hours, I found a solution to subtract the time code like that :

For example "+-3." from "0;0;10;12" return, "0;0;7;12"

We must add signs "+" and "-" to make a relative subtraction of  the time code.

Unfortunately, this feature doesn't work the same way that it does in Premiere, so this isn't possible. It's a good feature request, though, and one that you should file (or see if someone else already did) and post the link back here so others can vote for it. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911311-after-effects

Ah, great find! Now that you mention that I vaguely remember coming across this information before, but clearly it's not very discoverable. I think it's still a good feature request to make the operation work just like in Premiere, but you could also make a UserVoice request for the documentation change.
