Short description of error
Hi everyone, I'm guessing this may have been a new feature added to Blender 2.8, but it really conflicts with basic animation workflow and feels like a bug. Upon selecting a keyframe in the timeline or dopesheet, the user automatically enters move mode, which makes it impossible to shift-select other keyframes until you first cancel the selection of the first keyframe. It makes the timeline / dopesheet feel "out of control" and the probability of accidentally moving keyframes becomes high. This behavior is very unexpected, and does not occur in other commercial software. It should be reverted back to the previous behavior of first selecting all your keys, then entering move mode with "G"; OR as an alternative, it should enter move mode upon "click, hold, and drag" which would at least be consistent with other software that feature editable keyframes.

Thanks so much for your great improvements in 2.8 and for looking into this issue.

This should already be fixed in the newest Blender builds. You're build is a couple of weeks old already.

Feel free to reopen this report, when the issue still exists.

Thanks so much for letting me know, Jacques! I just downloaded the latest build (2019-06-05 13:55, hash: rB806d4fbc5e40) and it works perfectly... no more keyframe issues. :-) You all are doing an incredible job!
