    Hey David. Thanks for taking our feedback on board so quickly. The new Width options are exactly what we asked for. I've added further comments over on the Support Community forum post started by Jim_Acquavella as it seems to be getting more of a conversation going. Thanks again.

    I agree with Saul. But I wanted to clarify that (although it would be great) we don’t need the ability to taper in and out several times along a single stroke, like the AI width tool. What we need, is the ability to control the width (stroke weight) at the end of the taper, separately to the easing controls you’ve currently provided. It should be possible to taper from eg 100px stroke weight at the start of a path, to 80px stroke weight at the end.

    The workarounds that we currently use, (either using a text along a path with lots of periods, or many duplicate paths with different trims) both work like this. As does illustrators width tool. Even using a brush on a stroke in AI can be configured to taper to a specific width. This current implementation is a great start, but it’s missing crucial functionality that I think will result in more users complaining than celebrating.

    Yeah - mixing bug reports and feature requests is crazy.

    In my view, preferences to allow users to disable new behaviours are usually a good idea (see the backlash to the new Home button, for example). Disrupting muscle memory isn't great, but it isn't the end of the world, especially if it's something less than fundamental and adds a really useful new feature.

    I use Option-drag to scale keyframes quite often. Looking at current modifier combo's on keyframes, I think the one I'd miss the least is Cmd/Ctrl + Option clicking (which currently toggles Hold interpolation). Personally, I'd add a new key command for Toggle Hold Keyframe - HH. We're all using TT and UU all the time, why not use a few more double-tap keys? Then have the Cmd/Ctrl + Option drag do the duplicating. Or if people want the duplicate with Option-drag, use Cmd + Option drag for the scaling.

    I also want to say that adding an option to drag keyframes to duplicate them 1. Needs to work with keyframes on multiple layers, and 2. Is not sufficient on it's own - we also need the ability to copy and paste keyframes from multiple layers with keyboard commands. Because dragging is not always easy to do with precision, for example if working in long duration comps on a smaller monitor. Pasting multiple layer keyframes to the CTI is, I would say, more important than being able to drag-duplicate them. And it should not require any more than the standard Cmd-C and Cmd-V. I was teaching 3rd year students recently and they find the existing behaviour (layers copying and pasting) bizarre - it goes against the expectations that the rest of AE's behaviours (which are more contextual, based on selection) actually engender.
