Short description of error

Since the drop-down menu for How to sync Playback got moved
into the Playback drop-down menu, its ability to be keyed got broken.

2.80 and onwards opens these keyed properties correctly
(from 2.97b and earlier), but does not allow any control over the
keyframe(s) from the context menu or keyboard shortcuts.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error from scratch

  • Open a broken version
  • In the timeline editor --> Playback drop-down menu
  • Over the How to sync Playback try inserting a keyframe (right-clicking or pressing I)



Event Timeline

Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Confirmed, Medium.Fri, Nov 22, 4:10 PM

I can confirm, in blender 2.79 it used to work:

Apparently properties inside popovers can't be animated.

Yeah, there's a couple more irregularities, in the playback popover: Mute Audio & Audio Scrubbing.
Context menu keying options are available (in 2.8x & 2.7x), but do not work in 2.8x or 2.7x.
