No, never. It's to scroll through frames, right?

The double arrows are used to scroll through the timeline (I use them sometimes)
The empty field allows you to go directly to the chosen frame.

Actually, I've never used the "Current field" in 7 years and I was wandering if this feature is really necessary.

Please don't get rid of it! :shock: I use it all day long because I can reach it with my pen's tip, while the rest of the layer is on my monitor to the right. If you want to do anything with it, please move it over to the left so that the pen can draw out longer stretches to the right; THAT would be just wonderful. If you do that for me, I'll never say a grumpy word about a cute film made in TVP, I promise!

But then people with a single monitor will complain they can't move to the left...

We'll need to find a middle point (pun intended :)

In that case I'll grump only selective cases of the cuteness syndrome.

Don't forget I'm not talking about the double arrows, but about the empty fields :)

But don't they go together? I know that there is a bit of redundancy here, nevertheless, it is at times practical to set your cursor to an exact frame count displayed right next to the arrows you are moving. Having said that, I don't want to stand in the way of some planned feature that would be of more importance to more people.

Never used it either. I find it easier to just find the frame I want in the time line.

I like it. Some of my projects tend to get very long, and manual scrolling to the end or some later frame is a PITA.

Would it be possible to move the field to the bottom (since there's already a "current frame" info)?

That's an interesting interface color scheme you have there, Jerome. Can you share it with us?
