Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Changes to the Flash interface and performance improvements, part of Flash CC 2013 New Features.
…Flash Pro Creative Cloud introduces a number of performance improvements.…As well as changes to the user interface.…To demonstrate these, I'll be using the file…called, monster.fla and the exercise files for this chapter.…Probably the first change that you'll notice is…that, flash has changed color from previous versions.…It's now using a dark gray color for the interface, which,…matches the color scheme used by Photoshop and other Adobe softwares.…You do have the option to switch back to the old, lighter interface, if you wish.…Simply go to the edit menu and choose Preferences.…
Or, if you're on a Mac, it's under the Flash menu, and then Preferences.…Here you can choose between dark, or light.…[SOUND] You can also choose to enable shading, or not.…Let's just applies some, subtle shading effects to the interface.…One change to the stage area, is that…fact that there is now, unlimited paste board size.…So, I'm going to scroll up as far as I can,…and you can see the current upper limit of the paste board.…
