animate pro video #46 question

i just try to make a mixed rig for my character. according to the #46 tutorial from the tb animate pro video series i can update the pivot for the arm peg (being a drawing element) from the arm drawing (copy / paste special).

apart from the fact that i can’t see the camera view selection without the animation transformation tool on (the second one under the yellow animate icon) i can’t get a pivot update on the empty drawing without a keyframe being generated.

what am i doing wrong?
thanks in advance.

It shouldn’t matter which tool you have selected when you do this. What you actually want to do here is select the cell in the timeline, Copy, then select the cell in the timeline for the peg, Paste Special.

Does this help at all?
