Snap to second while scrubbing the frame in the timeline
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In the timeline, left click drag can be used to scrub the frame.

This quick hack proposes to snap to the nearest second when Ctrl is held (convention used all across Blender).

While this isn't high priority, I think it's nice to support.

This is really, really great. Do you think it is doable for the graph editor as well ?

Eh, I misread. I thought this was about snapping to the nearest keyframe, not second. Nevermind !

@Hadrien Brissaud (hadrien) - think this is a different quick hack (we might want something similar for sequencer too), since it's snapping to data instead of a fixed interval.

Maybe when "Show Subframe" is enabled holding Ctrl + Shift will snap 0.10 of a second? Possible?

Oh, ok. I'm sorry. Working on it.

I submitted a patch for this one here: Diff 9969

Somehow Diff 9969 is in a half submitted state, finalized - now it's D3046

I have an update for this one. Altough, after inserting the diff file, there isn't an option to update the older one, only to create a new one. Is it supposed to be like this? I just don't want to spread spam around :D

@André Lourenço (alourenco) - somehow you submitted this diff in a way that I needed to create it (the link to https://developer.blender.org/differential/diff/9969 asked to to create the diff).
I've never seen this before, not sure why that happened.

There is no way I can make you the owner (as far as I can see). Can you claim ownership of the diff - then when you go to add a new diff you have the option to update existing ones you own.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) I think I didn't complete the submission on the first time. I also can't find a way to claim this one since it's abandoned. I'll create a complete one with the new diff and then, I hope, it will be updatable. Sorry for the mess.

edit: Fully submitted in D3056

Hello! Is this task still available? Can I work on top of the last Patch or should I submit a new one?
