Graph Editor Auto Frame

Graph Editor Auto Frame



since working in 2017 my graph editor automatically frames the curves of each new selected item

this is sometimes useful, but sometimes confusing

I cannot find this feature, perhaps someone could give me a hint


btw its not the "time snap on/off"

this breaks the link to all new selections

I want to see new curves when i select a new object

just not zoom/frame to their range but stay with my previous framing


thnx in advance

I see what you mean.. hmmm..  It wants to just zoom into the keys of the last selected object.  I will try to find out how stop this as I do see how it can gre annoying pretty fast.


Thanks for reporting this.. as it is, it seems like it was designed this way, yet we might not be aware of a check box hidden someplace to make it all better ;-).  Have a great weekend, I will check back on Monday to see if I have figured it out.

Hello @martinmichl,


There is an option in Windows > Settings/Preferences > Animation. Under Graph Editor disable the option for "Auto Frame".

Wow, hidden in the Preferences?  That is some lazy programming there.


Is there a Preference for a better UI?  Maybe a "Awww, Come ON!" button so I don't have to keep yelling it out loud.

I know this topic is Super old, but I don't care. I just wanted to say thank you so very much. This just saved me so much frustration. The graph editor constantly zooming back out while trying to work within a specific region was driving me absolutely bonkers. What hair I have left is also thankful.
