Delete objects on stage from timeline

Hello community,

 

I've been looking around on the forum, but I haven't found anyone with a similar problem. In the past, I could simply select an object's frame in the timeline to delete it or move it using the arrow keys. If this didn't work, it was usually because I didn't have the right tool selected. So, I would press V (for the selection tool), and it would work.

However, this doesn't seem to be possible anymore. Now, I have to select the object on the stage to delete it; otherwise, it doesn't work. I find this to be very annoying, especially when I want to select an object in a layer beneath another object.

I hope someone has a solution. Thank you!

 

Erik

Hi.

 

That's still the default behavior. I just tested in latest version of Animate (v 24.0.1).

 

Which version of Animate are you using?

Maybe you'll need to clear configuration files, re-install it or update it.

 

Please let us know.

 

Regards,

JC

Thanks for both answers @JoãoCésar @kglad ,

Turns out you are both right, there is something wrong with my device or installation witch disables the delete button in Animate. To reïnstall is too much of a hassle, for now. But the backspace works, so I'm happy.
