Time Slide tool doesn't take NLA mapping into account

While Tweaking Strip Actions (Tab), if the actual keyframes of the action are different from the NLA's relative location, Alt+RMB doesn't select them in the Graph Editor. They can be selected correctly in the Dopesheet.
For example, if the Action's first keyframe is set at frame 0 while the NLA track starts at frame 45, the key can't be selected this way in the Graph Editor.

edit: also Timeslide (Shift+T) doesn't work correctly in Dope Sheet during Tweak mode. It will only work if the cursor starts in the exact frame range (not the NLA's offset range)
edit2: Pose Breakdowner also doesn't work correctly in Tweak Mode. Again, it doesn't account for the offset of the active NLA Strip. Also changed title since there's probably something else.
edit3: moving keyframes in the Graph Editor starts by jumping back to the actual keyframe locations

Bastien Montagne (mont29) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to Normal.

@Joshua Leung (aligorith) not sure whether this is supposed to work or not in tweak mode?

I finally got around to checking on this report again today.

  • It appears that most of the previous issues are no longer occurring now, so I assume that all of those were caused by T52327
  • Only the Time Slide tool still seems to be broken. Looking into it, it seems that it wasn't set up to work with NLA offsets yet (though it probably should)

Wasn't sure if this was supposed to be re-opened, submitted as new, or mentioned as a note but:

Alt+RMB still doesn't work for "moved" tracks. If you move a track around, this select doesn't work in "Graph Editor", unless you Apply the scale (even if it wasn't scaled).
Everything else seems to work though :)

(may be redundant but while browsing my reports from last year, Bastion told me to not re-open tasks myself, and considering I'm not even sure if it's the same thing, I re-closed it )
