I'm using a shortcut for the Jump to previous/next keyframe function, but when the scene's Grease Pencil is visible, Grease Pencil's keyframes are also in the timeline.

It interferes in jumping between keyframes of an object I am animating.

When I turn off Grease Pencil, the keyframe markers disappear. I can jump to only my object's keyframes again, but I lose the scene's Grease Pencil in the viewport.

So, I want to see the scene's Grease Pencil in the viewport but not see it's keyframes in the timeline.

Are there options to enable this?

By default blender 2.8 doesnt show greasepencil keyframes in the timeline viewer.

I found out in this post that the keyframes a bit iffy on greasepencil in 2.8 but if you want to see them use the dopesheet instead of the timeline as the keyframe viewer. You can use up/down arrow keys to navigate between keyframes there.

You can do a dual split to have both dopesheets or a dopesheet/timeline to see both.

  • If your selected on a GreasePencil object... up/down will go through GP keyframes

  • If selected on a regular dopesheet object (e.g. mesh , curve etc...) up/down will go through normal frames.
