Suggestion to Adobe Animate for improvement

I would like to see Adobe Animate add this new feature. When animating frame by frame, instead of deleting the previous drawing all the time when jumping to the next frame, I think the previous one should be deleted automatically when jumping to the next frame. I like the automatic keyframe that Adobe added, but still not enough in order to speed up when working frame by frame. It would save time if we had this feature of auto-delete the previous drawing on the new frame.

(i think there would be problems with that, but i'm not the arbiter of such things.)

You don't want to manually delete the previous frame while processing the next frame, you can do it with F7 (convert to blank keyframe)

Exactly what I do but I don't want to hit F7 all the time in order to
create a blank keyframe. Let put it this way, I love Animate but I also use
ToonBoom Harmony, this feature I am talking about, Toonboom has it and it
makes the workflow quicker. So after drawing on one keyframe and you just
move the vertical line on the timeline to the next frame and it will
automatically be blank, so with your onionskin activated, it will reveal
your previous drawings, you don't need to press F7 everytime to create a
blank keyframe. This way really helps save time especially when you have
many keyframes to draw when animating traditionally. If Toonboom has it, I
am sure Adobe can do it too. It's a simple feature that would save time for
many traditional animators who use Animate.

But also I love the fact that in Adobe Animate you can hit F6 to create a
keyframe which means the same drawing will be copied and pasted but not
duplicated, you can edit it, erase one part of it without affecting any
other previous keyframe/drawing similar to the one you just created.

Why don't you just select 50 or 100 frames and hit F7? This will give you 50 or 100 blank keyframes with one press of a button.

Thanks, your suggestion helps. I didn't know this technique could also make
a difference. I hope Adobe can add that feature I am talking about, but
your suggestion definitely works. Thanks so much, I will use it, I learned
a new trick.

You'll have to do it manually anyway, I think using the next frame shortcut ">", combined with automatic insertion of blank keyframes, is the fastest option.
I think the way you said to automatically enter the next blank keyframe after drawing is very good, please give official feedback, the current automatic keyframe only has two functions, it depends on whether they are willing or not.
