In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
The Text Layout Framework supports more languages than the classic text engine, including better support for Asian languages and right-to-left languages. To see the settings for Asian and right-to-left languages, select a text field on the Stage or click on the Text tool in the toolbar and go to the Properties panel. In the Properties panel, click the flyout menu at the top right to expand options for the Properties panel. In that menu you will see checkboxes for Asian options and right-to-left Options.
So you can enable or disable those options when you are creating text fields. Enabling these options adds more options to the Properties panel when you are working with a text field. So as you scroll down, you will see extra options in Advanced Character for Asian languages like Dominant Baseline and Alignment Baseline. And then you will be able to set right to left in the Direction area, in the Paragraph section of the Properties panel. So I can check Right to Left or Left to Right. So using these new options in Flash, you have better support than ever before for Asian and right-to-left languages.
