Hi all,

I am searching a way to change all the groups in the contents of my outlines layer to layers itself to animate.

1 I inported a illustrator file
2 then create outlines from vector layer
3 now there is 1 layer with all the outlines (groups) in the contents

So far so good. But now I want to animate all the created outlines (now groups).

And this is a pain in the butt when they are groups in the contents: I can't select them from the visual window (only in the contents list, I can't use shortcuts as they control the whole layer.
