1 Select the frame you want to copy in the Animation palette or the Rollovers palette.
Note: In the Animation palette, you can select and copy multiple frames. (See "Selecting frames" on page 405.)
2 Choose Copy Frame(s) from the Animation palette menu or the Rollovers palette menu.
3 Select a destination frame or frames in the current animation or another animation.
4 Choose Paste Frame(s) from the Animation palette menu or the Rollovers palette menu.
5 Select a Paste method:
• Replace Frames to replace the selected frames with the copied frames. When you paste frames into the same image, no new layers are added to the image; rather, the attributes of each existing layer in the destination frames are replaced by those of each copied layer. When you paste frames between images, new layers are added to the image; however, only the pasted layers are visible in the destination frames (the existing layers are hidden).
• Paste Over Selection to add the contents of the pasted frames as new layers in the image. When you paste frames into the same image, using this option doubles the number of layers in the image. In the destination frames, the newly pasted layers are visible, and the original layers are hidden. In the nondestination frames, the newly pasted layers are hidden.
• Paste Before Selection or Paste After Selection to add the copied frames before or after the destination frame. When you paste frames between images, new layers are added to the image; however, only the pasted layers are visible in the new frames (the existing layers are hidden).
6 Select Link Added Layers if you want to link pasted layers in the Layers palette. Use this option when you need to reposition the pasted layers as a unit.
