    Default Animation - How to flick through frames?

    I've been using Xara Photo & Grahic Designer for years but only just started using it for animation.

    I have a question I'm hoping there's a simple answer to:

    When I have a series of animation frames, how do I flick through them without having to do a preview? I want to just use the cursor keys or something to quickly move from one frame to the next, but can't find a way of doing it. It seems quite an obvious thing to want to do, is it possible??

    Use the next frame/previous frame buttons on the toolbar.

    there is an option in animation properties [properties button in frame gallery] to set one timing for all frames so you can set this to a [low] speed that will enable you to see the frames progess without having to click when using preview play

    but this will overide any individual settings, so if you have an animation with variable timing between frames you would need to do it on a copy of the file, to avoid having to rest them all afterwards

    however if your animation has only one timing between frames you can just set it back afterwards using the same function
