Question Dragging full animation with dope sheet

I need to drag my full animation project
so it wont start at frame -500 but and start at frame 100..

I know it should be simple..but something isn't working right..
what I do is:
1- open the dope sheet. (no objects selected)
2 - drag the world range from its middle..
the result is that the lower ranges are stretching each one differently..
I only need to move the whole scene and camera ahead in time..
What am I doing wrong.. ?
I still dont know why its not working as always on the track editor
but I just found a way to do it with selecting all objects (including hidden)
on the layers manager..then selecting all keyframes +dragging ahead

I would open the curve editor, and grab all the keyframes on all objects, and slide them to the new start position.

Thumbs up

thanks ZephyrStar for your reply..
I didnt do it at first because I thought that with the dope sheet
the animation will be moved completely when the sub-trees option is checked..
but maybe you are right and its the same..
