Thanks for the file.

 

The reason is because the layer is of type motion tween. And I just found out that this type of layer cannot have frame scripts.

You'll need to alt drag the frame containing the code to a regular layer.

 

I honestly didn't know about this limitation especially because I rarely use motion tweens.

 

Anyway, you should be able to access the script now.

JC

Hi.

 

Please make sure that you are selecting only one single frame and not the entire layer.

Do this:

And not this:

If it's the same frame, you can add the code in any layer. It doesn't need to be in that specific layer.

 

I'm not sure why you get this issue, but I guess it's an workaround for now.

You can access the frames that already have code by navigating in the left side of the Actions Panel.
