Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating shapes in Merge Drawing mode, part of Learning Flash Professional.
There are two drawing modes available to you when using the drawing tools in Flash.…Merge Drawing mode and Object Drawing mode.…To explore Merge Drawing mode, let's create a blank FLA document in Flash and…select one of the drawing tools.…I am going to choose the Rectangle.…When you do, the Property Inspector should open.…Like other drawing programs, Flash lets you choose what color the outline or…stroke is going to be as well as the fill.…Click once on the color chip next to the icon of the pencil to expand the…color palette for stroke.…And let's make our stroke be black.…
Clicking once on the color chip next to the paint bucket, let's make our fill be red of CC0000.…Before drawing our rectangle, let's make sure that we're using Merge Drawing mode.…When you select a tool, the properties area underneath the toolbar also changes…to show you more options available for that tool.…For our rectangle, we see a little icon that looks like a circle within a square.…This icon is how to toggle between Merge and Object drawing modes.…
