Hello everyone,

I've been making a small animation and now that I have the general motion down, want to make a copy from it and move it somewhere else on the page. I can't find the edit multiple frames button anywhere, is it just gone in the 2021 version or am I overlooking it?

 

I also tried importing it to the 2020 version, but I can't change my vector object at all or even select the object I'm working with.

 

Any help will be very appreciated.

I don't have this button above my timeline either. It's missing from the interface. Weird; I've been using Animate (and before that, Flash, since the 90s), and this functionality has always been there.

It's a Canvas (HTML5) document, but I tried opening an Actionscript doc as well, and its still not there.

Novice mode?1 I've never even heard of such a thing (and I was in the Animate prerelease group for a while)...

Yep! I'm not the OP, so I can't mark this solved, though.
