|Animatic editing mode||
It is now possible to create gaps in your animatic when editing its timing, like when editing video clips in a video editing software.
By default, any change you make to your animatic will ripple subsequent panels so as to avoid leaving gaps in the timeline. To be able to create gaps, you must enable Animatic Editing Mode. This can be done by clicking on the Animatic Editing Mode button in the bottom-left corner of the Timeline view. You can also temporarily toggle Animatic Editing Mode by pressing and holding the Ctrl (Windows) or ⌘ (macOS) key while changing the duration of a panel in the Timeline view.

|Enable & disable clip synchronization by track||
By default, when you offset panels, sound clips and video clips that are cued during those panels will also be offset to remain synchronized with them.
You can now disable the synchronization of video and sound clips for each video and audio track in your project. When synchronization is disabled for a track, its clips will not offset when you make changes to the timing of your animatic.
To disable synchronization for a track, click on the Sync button next to this track in the Timeline view.
|Separate video and audio sections||
The Timeline view is now divided in two separate areas:
It is possible to reposition the divider between those two areas and to scroll each area vertically without affecting the other area.
|Navigate to previous and next sequence||
Commands to instantly navigate to the previous or the next sequence have been added to the Play menu.
Those commands can also be added to the Navigation toolbar, which, by default, only has the Panel First Frame and the Panel Last Frame buttons. You can customize this toolbar by right-clicking on it and selecting Customize.
You can also assign keyboard shortcuts to the Previous Sequence and Next Sequence commands, in the Play/Navigation section of the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog.
