Copy/paste to frames

I have Photoshop CS5 on my iMac and CC on my MacBook. Lately I’ve been toying with the Animation (Timeline).  So in CS5 even after I create frames from layers I am able to copy and paste from one layer to another. In CC I am unable to do so, and I can’t find a way to convert them back to regular layers after I’ve created the timeline.

 

Copying elements from one frame to another and then checking the motion seems to be fundamental. Any ideas on how to do any of that in CC?

I don't follow what you wrote. What you wrote does not seem to be correct to me. Frame in a frame animation are the composite view of the layer visible in the frame in the layer palette. Where you positioned the layer content for the frame or where tween positioned the layers for the frame's composite.  You can Copy and Paste Frames between Frame animations that still this creates layer in the layer stack.   You do not past into frames you add frames and make layers visible in the frame in the layers palette and you and you position the layers content for the frame composite.  You also do not paste into a layer paste will add a new layer.  Frame are not layers  you can create frame with layers you can not create layer from a frame.  However, you should be able to copy a frame into the clipboard the paste a layer into   your document layer stack.

Thank you for your reply. I will do some more experiments to see if it
comes clear. I understand that copy/paste in PS creates a new layer,
However it is possible to merge the layers in CS5 which modifies the
associated frame. It doesn't appear to work that way in CC. If I copy a
portion of a layer it creates a new frame and I can't merge the layers.

Now it seems to be working that way (with a simple experiment). I must have
had something balled up. Thanks again.
