Hi I want to move my animation to a new position. But if I select every frame it moves only from where my time indicator is. How can I move everything to a new position?

If you want to keep to the timeline, you can use "Edit Multiple Frames" at the bottom of the timeline. Select the beginning and the end of the range of frames that you want to move. Go to the buttons at the bottom of the timeline, The second one from the right is the Edit Multiple Frames button, select that. Now you can drag the objects in the that layer to a new position on the stage.

Are you talking about moving to a new position on the stage or a new position on the timeline? If you want to move the animation, the action between two or more keyframes to a new position on the stage, the simplest solution is to cut and paste the frames into a movieClip and then position that movieClip on the stage where you want it to run. If you want to have the animation occur at a different time in the timeline, you can select the whole set of frames and then drag them to a new point in the timeline. You can even drag the frames to a different layer if you like.

Thanks, yes to a new position. Yeah I created a new movieclip and repositioned the whole animation. The only thing is that I want the animation to be on the layers on scene1 and have all the keyframes there. If I create a movieclip, I'll have to extend the amount of frames to the amount of the movieclip animation, which is okay. But I'll have to enter the movieclip to make adjustments to the keyframes. I thought maybe there was an "easier" way. Bu thanks though.

Thanks for sharing this... was pulling my hair out trying to figure out where they moved it to. I'm coming from Flash transitioning over to Animate, and some of the new layout still requires getting used to. Not sure why they removed the edit multiple frames from the properties panel.

I recommend you to do new animation in movie clip from the beginning if you want to move it later. It would be easier to transfer it to any place you want.

If you're going to use the edit multiple frames function, be sure to also select either the onion skin or wireframe button and increase the range to be the entire length of your layer. Otherwise it won't work.
