About the Animate Mode
The Animate mode records the position, rotation, scale, skew, etc. of objects as keyframes in the Timeline view. Turn off the Animate mode to reposition objects for the entire scene. When the Animate mode is disabled, keyframes are not created when an object's parameters change.
When positioning elements, make sure the Animate Mode is turned off, or it will create a keyframe on your drawing layer. The animate mode is used to animate layers over time.
- In the Tools toolbar, click the Animate button or select Animation > Animate.
