toggle auto-keyframe shortcut? I know its the letter "a" in motion 4

how do I modify keyboard shortcuts? and i assume in the same place I can see all of them. I have the manual that lists them, but can't find "auto-keyframe"

This page tells you how to modify keyboard shortcuts: [link]

I don't believe there is a keyboard shortcut to toggle Auto Keyframe mode, but there is a button to turn it on and off: [link]

I'm not sure how auto-keyframing works in Motion, but keep in mind that in AE keyframes will ALWAYS be created for attribute that already has a keyframe on it, regardless of whether auto keyframe is on or off.

When auto keyframe is on, the modification of any property (scaling a layer) will create a keyframe, even if no keyframes existed before.

This behavior is different from a lot of 3D apps, which will not create a keyframe even for a property with existing keyframes unless auto-keyframe is enabled....
