I thought this was possible, but it does not work for me (v 3.0.9). Is it broken?
No this is not possible. You can only drag one element at a time in the timeline.
Please make it possible.
I have logged this with our development team and it will be considered for inclusion in a future release of VideoScribe.
The ability to select and move multiple elements in the timeline is a mission critical update. As it stands, revising some scribes to reorder elements is a massive (almost impossible) undertaking.
+1000 to this idea for development. I found forum posts requesting this dating back to 2014.
We can move multiple items in the timeline with cut and paste. However, a drawback is that the animation type becomes "draw" for all elements that we cut and paste.
Note to support/developers: please fix cut and paste to retain the correct animation type (draw, morph, move in, fade in)
We do have this logged as a bug - where the animate type defaults to 'Draw' on pasted elements. I have added this forum thread to the bug report for our developers.
That's excellent to hear. Copy paste would be a strong substitute for multiple drag and drop in the timeline once that issue is fixed.
Thanks for the information!
