Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of shortcuts, extensions, and setup, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
So let's get started setting up Flash so that it works pretty much the way…we want it to work.…So let's create a new file on the template; ActionScript 3.0 should be fine.…I like to make sure that the toolbar is on the left side of the screen. I feel…it's a little too cloistered over here.…So to move it, simply select this gray bar, click and drag. And as you move it…around the program little blue columns will appear, and once you see this…vertical blue line, you can release, and there it is.…
And now you can resize it to whatever horizontal or vertical structure you prefer.…I like -- two vertical columns works nicely;…I find this easier to find what I'm looking for over there.…The next thing you want to do is make some adjustments to the…Preferences settings.…So let's go Edit>Preferences. And the big one, the most important one, is to…select Object-level Undo from the Document-level Undo dropdown, and click Yes.…This will provide every symbol in your project with its own completely…independent history of Dos and Undos. This is very important when you're making changes.…
