I'm currently learning blender with the donut tutorial from blender guru. In Part 4, Level 4, he's switching from the "Layout" tab to the "Animation" tab at 5:27. Here's a link to the video. Now, my problem is: the graph editor is tiny. I can see the different vertices, but the graphs are very close to each other. I've looked in the settings tab, looked after a solution on the internet (especially here), but I can't find anything that solves the problem. Here's a picture. You can see: I do have six objects, but they are very close to each other so the graph seems like it's only one line

Thanks for your help! I am looking forward to your answer.

For expanding the editor window aka timeline editor, just select the edge of the timeline window and move it up/down to your liking.

To enlarge timeline graphs, simply zoom in/out with the mouse wheel while hovering over the timeline editor window.

You can also hold Ctrl and use MMB MMB (Middle Mouse Button) to scale along a desired axis.


I found another solution myself now (Blender guru says that in his video, but a bit later): Just press pos1, also known as "Home Key". It will center at the existing keyframes.
