In 2.60, there was a reshuffle of the hotkeys for jumping 10 frames, but also for jumping between keyframes. Back then, the responses I got back to a poll on this matter (or more specifically, the matter of making the jumping between keyframes operator easier to activate, given that it used to be the rather nasty Ctrl-PageUp/Down) suggested that it would be a good idea to change this to Up/Down arrow as jumping between keyframes was apparently something animators do a lot more. However, jumping 10 frames had to be moved as a result.
Back then, and a few times since, there I’ve heard that some were not happy with this change. Given that there’s now been a settling period after this changeover for people to get over the initial “argh! something changed!” response and actually get used to this for a while, I’d like to know whether in practice this arrangement is working, or whether another round of changes is needed.
The options are as follows:
- Up/Down Arrows go back to being Jump +/- 10 Frames, AND Shift-Up/Down Arrows now become the Keyframe Jumping keys
- Keep the current situation: Shift-Up/Down Arrows are for Jump +/- 10 Frames, AND Up/Down Arrows are for Keyframe Jumping
- There is no option 3
I’ve set this poll to close on May 18th.
EDIT: To clarify, in all of these situations, Left/Right Arrows will remain as they already are (single stepping frames left/right)
