I am having trouble selecting multiple keyframes in the action editor spread over multiple channels. I have tried with all channels selected/deselected but with no luck. Is there a trick in order to get border select working across multiple channels.

Here is my attempt to border select, after which I individually select keyframes.

    $\begingroup$ Are you maybe accidentally using "B" + "Middle Mouse Button" instead of "B" + "Left Mouse Button"? Did you configure anything in the mouse settings? $\endgroup$ – Abel Dec 1 '15 at 13:14
  • $\begingroup$ Nope. B + Left mouse button. In my setting I have selected using the left mouse button for selecting instead of the right. I have tried both options but with no avail. $\endgroup$ – dimitarsp Dec 1 '15 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have a mouse with 3 buttons (with a middle mouse button/Roller) or are you using laptop buttons? $\endgroup$ – Abel Dec 1 '15 at 14:40

  • $\begingroup$ I have added a link to the file. I am using a standard 3 button mouse. $\endgroup$ – dimitarsp Dec 1 '15 at 16:45

You need to unpin the action in NLA editor.

Unpin here

It will then "un-timeremap" your action and allow you to select with B.

Not sure if "feature or bug", will ask Aligorith or a dev.
