So I just accidentally clicked on ‘Keyframe Parameter’ because of the popup that happens when trying to click on ‘Reset Parameter’ when right clicking:
Which happens too often, and I hope the second level of the menu can be changed to not appear until the first level is actually clicked, but my issue isn’t that, it’s that even though I changed the newly opened animation pane, my timeline has changed to a different range, and is now brownish:
What is this? How do I get back?
Hey @matijaerceg ,
sorry about this, and yes - that’s annoying. You are looking at the component time of the Animation COMP in /ui/dialogs…
To get out of this, click the “root” button as indicated in the screenshot below.
Yeah I kept noticing this in the newer builds. What changed from the older ones to the newer ones that the keyframe popup now keeps getting in the way of “Reset Parameter”? I feel like it never used to happen before but the order of the menu items didn’t change… did I just get lucky all the time before and unlucky now or something?
Glad someone else mentioned it cause I thought I was just crazy.
It happens when the parameters are along the right edge of the screen.
If you right click on a parameter whilst parameters are in the middle of the screen, the 2nd level menu pops up to the right of the top level menu, no issue.
I believe that other programs deal with this by making child-level menus always clear the parent menu on either side, so that if there’s no room on the right, it draws on the left, not on top.
What you describe used to work in previous builds. It’s a regression and it is being looked into.
