Greetings Folks,

Been working in AE for a long time but the simplest, most useful key command eludes me.

I just want to select a layer and nudge it forward or backward in time. Obviously I can move my cursor and then snap the in-point of the layer to it, etc etc etc. But I really need to just select a layer, or group of layers, and NUDGE THEM!!!!!!!

I cannot find this in any shortcuts menu!

Would it be ALT+PageUp and ALT+PageDown?

Hope I understood you question correctly.

Add Shift to Nudge then 10 frames at a time.

Mr. Durham
For Nudging layers you can use ALT+page up/page Down

Use Cntrl+SHIFT+ Arrow Keys to skip 10 frames

and Use Cntrl+Alt+Arrow Keys to go to end and starting point .
