Simple question

Hi folks,
Working on some basic walks today, and encountered something which has been happening before now, but now it’s really annoying. I work with each walk position on twos (1,3,5, etc.), then I do the tweening. I can’t seem to figure out how to stop TBA from filling in the empty cell prior to the current cell I’m working on, it’s driving me nuts!

P.S. I did search for a solution here in the forums and google, but to no avail.

Yep, that did the trick. Thanks for the help. I take it there is no shortcut key for that operation, as I don’t see one indicated in the pull down “drawing” menu.

When you do a drag, or when you do a paste, you can turn off Extend Exposure so that it doesn’t fill in the exposure automatically. You can’t, however, do this for automatic drawing creation. What you can do, is select the frame where you want to make your drawing, and then do a Drawing > Create Empty Drawing (accessible through the right-click menu, there’s also a shortcut and a button for it on the Timeline toolbar). This locks the exposure on that frame and will not extend the exposure from the previous frame.

If you want to turn off Extend Exposure for a drag, then while you’re dragging, before releasing, hold down the Ctrl key. Then deselect the “Extend Exposure” option.

If you want to turn it of on a paste, then it will be located in the same place on the Paste Special window.

Hope this helps!
