Time Ruler Bug
The Time Ruler bug I read about from 2017 is still happening in my app. I'm unable to see the Time Ruler in seconds. in Ae current version

f = frames. Option/alt-click on the timecode on the top-right of the timeline panel to cycle through all the various time formats. Or File → Project Settings → Time Display tab to choose from lists.
Thank you for making this report. When the Timeline is zoomed in, the time ruler is currently designed to switch from showing seconds to showing frames ( the "f" shown is for frames. ) In most situations, showing frames rather than portions of seconds is preferred for precise animation since it provides a better sense of timing in relation to the frame rate. Could you provide an example of when it would be preferable to see the seconds subdivided instead?
Thanks very much for your feedback!
