needs work

no file system to store more than one project. zooming is impossible without having to delete the marks that appear when doing so. undo is buried inside a menu. I could go on and on. very VERY frustrating. in spite of all that, this is still the best animation app available right now. that's a sad commentary. someone could make a lot of money creating a similar app with the basic functionality that animation desk is lacking.

Delete factor

Great app! BUT when you delete multiple frames they reappear as blank frames and you have to delete them twice! Great waste of time. You should make a trash can that you can drag and drop so you won't have to worry about them reappearing. A recovery box would be great like the trash can for finding a frame you deleted by accident.

Simple controls 👍

I am not an artist by any means but was able to figure out how to make a small straight line grow a frame at a time and roll itself into a ball only to bounce against a triangle and pop (back into a small straight line). Seriously, if I figured that out, you can use this.
