After you've been using Flash for a while,
you'll find that you have specific routines or tasks that you use
often that aren't assigned a hot key. I, for example, use the Scale
Tool all the time. It's probably one of the most used tools for
me but unfortunately, there's no Hot Key for it. Well, you can program
your own Flash Hot Keys. We'll walk you through that in this lesson.
Step 1: Edit the Keyboard Shortcuts
Open the Shorcuts window by going up
to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts...
Step 2: Create your own Set
Click the Duplicate Set button
Enter a new name for your set
Click on the Command you want to create
In this example, I clicked on Modify>Transform>Scale
Click in the + sign or double click
the command you want to change
Click in the Press Key field
and enter the key combinations you want to assign for the command
If you get a notice telling you the
shortcut is unavailable, try another key combination
I chose F3 for Scale and F4 for Rotate
Step 3: Remember your shortcuts
you write down your new shortcuts or make a mental note of them.
You can always go back and edit them if you need to.
