I use the VSE to do my video editing with the option "Select With Left" activated in Preferences.

Under those circumstances, in all beta versions of Blender 2.8, as well as the older 2.7 releases, pressing the right button with the mouse would drag the cursor easily for video and audio scrubbing and so on.

But now, pressing right click bring a context menu, and I can only restore the old behavior if I press Shift together with right click.

So, in Blender 2.8, how can I map "Change Frame" to right mouse click while Select With Left is activated in Preferences?

Under the File > User Preferences > Keymap look for the Animation entry.

There should be a Change Frame entry. Change it to watever you like, in this case I'd advise something like Tweak - Right.

You may additionally have to change the context menu to open on Right - Mouse - Release event instead.

The way to change frame using the mouse in the time based editors was changed before the official 2.80 release.

The official methods to change frame with the mouse -

  • LMB LMB under the header, where the frame/time is shown.

  • with LMB LMB select

    • ⇧ ShiftRMB RMB anywhere in the editor.
  • with RMB RMB select

    • LMB LMB anywhere in the editor.
