Hi chaps ... am I being slow here. I normally can highlight a few keyframes and hold the alt key and stretch them out (or close them up) but they're all moving in one lump ... someone please hit me over the head and tell me what I'm doing wrong please ?

Oh, it's something having to do with the position of the timeline cursor, highlighting just the interior keyframes -- not the first & last -- or or highlighting ALL the keyframes you want to stretch across time. It's something simple like that, but for the life of me I can't recall it.

I'll assume that if you're on a Mac, you've gotten past the CC 2014/Yosemite ugliness. Just wanted to eliminate software weirdness from the mix.

Thanks Dave, yes it was simple and I thought I new the solution (highlight all hold, alt key before grabbing end frame and continue to hold whilst dragging) but for the life of me it didn't seem to work the other day ... go figure. I was also having problems creating a new keyframe (in case anyone else is reading this) ... I moved a layer and ALL other keyframes moved ... I really thought something was seriously wrong ... but I'd "separated dimensions" to use the graph editor, rejoining them solved that little glitch ... and I am Mac Yosemite but not CC .. I've stuck with CS6 (don't get enough work to warrant the expense) !
