Selecting or changing only y position key frames

I have a bunch of key frames, but if I wanted to make them all align to a single horizontal line, would there be an easy way to go about doing this?

Not an automatic way.

Find the keyframe that's right. Twirl down the position property. Copy the Y value of that keyframe. Paste that Y value into the Y values of the rest of the keyframes.

You may also have to tweak the Bezier motion paths between keyframes. The easy way: Highlight all the keyframes in question. Right-click on one and change the SPATIAL interpolation to linear. You should be good to go.

Right click the Position property and select Separate Dimensions. It will split the position into X, Y (and Z if it's a 3D layer).

Then you can select, copy/paste only one dimension of the Position animation and apply it to many layers. Works great.

Only thing is it that it appears to remove easing (if you had any prior to separating dimensions), so you'll need to re-do the easing before copying the new Y position, for example.
