    @Tim
    Curse you, Tim, and your logical explanations!!
    The only issue I have is that AE's default key bindings are not, themselves, logical.
    In premiere, I've been able to rebind my most commonly used keys all to be under my left hand on the keyboard.
    In After Effects, my most commonly used keys are spread out all over the keyboard, because I can't rebind all of them, for reasons like this.
    It makes me a sad panda.
    however, I am not skilled enough in AE just yet to be able to make any intelligent recommendations for how else the shortcuts in AE should be laid out.
    However, now that AE has the visual keyboard shortcuts mapper, using AE has gotten a LOT easier, as the shortcuts are significantly more "discoverable" as you say. So thank you for that!

    so, the reason they don't do this, is because the Nearest Neighbor scaling that is used for the window, only works for integer scaling. (x1, x2, x3, x4 etc.)
    With a nearest/bilinear hybrid (also know as sharp bilinear) your pixel edges get blended together.
    Combined with a perfectly smooth zoom ability, you'd never be seeing what your canvas actually looks like.... just a fuzzier version of it.
    Here you can see a full explanation, (though it is to do with scaling within AE, not scaling of the main window itself.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKV1JFE0_Nk

    Anyway, Adobe, if you do put this feature in, for the love of God, put in the option to turn it off, and go back to the way it works now. Many of us do NOT want a smooth zoom.

    Sounds like you learned your lesson the hard way about NOT updating as soon as a new version comes out. (And definitely do NOT update in the middle of a project!)
    Finish up whatever project you're doing, and then revert back to 13.0.

    Can I, like, vote AGAINST this feature?
    If they add in this functionality, it's just more stuff that will break. More potential UI bugs that will affect other things that really matter, like the super annoying redraw failure bug that still hits me a few times a week. The software is already unstable enough as it is.

    I do have a WORKAROUND for this one.

    Use the ripple edit tool instead.
    Or, you know, with the selection tool, just hold the CTRL key to get to it.
    when you move all the layers, the markers will come with.
    But you do have to have a clip that sticks out that you can grab onto, so to speak.

    I never use the track select forward tool because yeah, it's useless if it doesn't move the markers.

    This is item 106 in my spreadsheet:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dVJb7kI_ZETLavrplfARgn9gL8HUpvkq6A0jCPxqA3w/edit#gid=1133868629

    Here is another discussion, which should perhaps be merged:

    @Tim
    Yes, these are two separate requests.
    All I know is, I love being able to alt+drag keyframes in Premiere to duplicate them, and I find it bizarre and annoying that it's so much more tedious in After Effects. I just want the exact same functionality in AE. (Side note, I also really wish I could stretch keyframes in Premiere, like I can in AE!)
    If someone wants to time-reverse their keyframes, they can still just do that with a keyboard shortcut for all selected frames AFTER they've been duplicated... I see no reason to combine those two actions into one, especially when we only have 3 modifier keys to work with. (I maybe misunderstood what you are getting at with #2.)

    Yes, having this feature would be fine, but please do NOT have this be the default behavior, with no option to go back to the old way.

    Ah, you mean your CURSOR disappears sometimes.
    Yeah, me too.
    I do have an AHK script that makes a tooltip every few milliseconds at where the cursor is supposed to be...
    After a few minutes, it usually re-appears.
    definitely a bug.

    In after effects, the shortcut for this is D.
    In premiere, I will use keys to zoom in and then out again, or double tap the spacebar.
    I too would like a proper shortcut, though.

    buy the impact dissolve from filmimpact.net.
    I'd like to have it in vanilla Premiere, but oh well!

    @Amédée
    I know this is no help to you, but I actually haven't encountered this bug in over a year. so I think they've been making progress in fixing it.

    @eric
    Just keep "Show background video" OFF. The icon should be white, not blue. I already posted the most effective workaround below.

    https://i.imgur.com/obp3Ajg.png

    Keep in mind that it'll turn itself on if you change sequences. You'll have to toggle it back off.
    This is why you keep that window separate from the others

    my WORKAROUND has improved.
    Turns out, you can have the titler AND a bunch of bins on the same (secondary!) monitor, if you sacrifice just a bit of space at the very top.
    Here's what my 2nd monitor usually looks like:
    https://i.imgur.com/du0JtaT.png

    And here's what it looks like when I'm creating a title:
    https://i.imgur.com/obp3Ajg.png
    I only need to click on the selection tool arrow icon, in order for it to switch to the titler windows.
    Notice also that I keep "show background video" OFF. The titler has always been too buggy and slow to keep that on....
    However, it'll turn itself back on if you switch sequences... resulting in the entire program slowing down, as it tries to display video information in the main titler window, even if it's underneath a bunch of bins.
    For this reason, I often still close the main titler window when it is not in use. The other 4 panels will NOT vanish, since they have been deliberately detached from it. However, it's fine to attach them to each other.

    Tee hee. I have a WORKAROUND. But you're not gonna like it!!
    When there's a will, there's a way.
    Undock those other panels from your titler, like this:
    https://imgur.com/UGys5cE
    When you're done titling, you can still close the main title panel. The other ones will stay put.
    Next time you open the main title panel, the others will still be there.
    DOWNSIDE:
    Because those 4 panels will float above ALL other Premiere panels, You pretty much need an additional monitor, JUST for the titler panels. Now, since I have 4 monitors, this isn't a problem for little ol' me. But you guys might find it very inconvenient.
    Go on, dust off an old monitor and stick it on the edge of your desk. It's worth it. truuuust me.
