    Moving Objects with Multiple keyframes

    I want to move everything on a nav bar about " to the right but there are 3 sets of keyframes throughout. Is it possible to select all objects/buttons etc and all the key frames and move the lot as one piece? Or do I you have to delete all the keyframes beyond frame 1, and replace them after the move?

    Hit the "Edit Multiple Frames" button just under the timeline - it is the two blue boxes. Make sure that the guide above the timeline covers all of your frames that you want to move. Then, [ctrl]+A to select all and move it over.

    OMG - That is too cool. The amount of times I have "started over" when trying to do that...

    Thanks.

    could you also just make the nav a movie clip so you can move it all together?

    Absolutely. Just make sure that, when completed, you update your targets to call the main timeline. If you had a button that called a movie clip, for example, you would need to adjust the code from:

    on(release){
    myClip.play();
    }

    to:

    on(release){
    _root.myClip.play();
    }

    Make sure you know where everything is in relation to the main timeline so you can call things properly.

    Is there a quicker way to select the whole timeline when editing multiple frames? Right now I'm scrolling and moving the selection bar over about 50 frames at a time, which is a bit of a pain with long sequences.
