Ditha AngrainiChanges doesn't show on preview as I'm changing the value

Hi, sorry if the subject didn't say much. I don't know what to call it (I've only just had access to AE and started using it more frequently in the past three months, and I'm doing a lot of tutorials at the moment).

I came across a tutorial awhile back, one part of the tutorial involved in activating/deactivating something that allows me to drag numbers in the layer's properties but the changes won't take place until the number is set. For example, if I'm dragging the scale number on the comp, the object on the preview monitor doesn't change as I drag this number up/down until the number is set. I think I've turned on this feature then, but I didn't turn it back off (and I can't remember which tutorial it was). Can someone please let me know how can I get this back so I can drag the numbers and the changes shows on the preview window as I'm doing it?

I hope this make sense, I'm trying my best to describe the problem I'm having.

Thank you very much for the help.

I'm not in front of my AE machine at the moment, but you're problem is with Live Update. It's just toggling the Live Update swith one way or the other. Look it up in AE Help and you'll get the straight skinny on it. The switch is in different places in different versions.

Live update! That's the term I've been looking for. Thank you so much :) I've found the button and now all working the way I want it. I knew it was something simple but couldn't remember which one was it and what it's called.

Thank you very much for the help :)
