Changing the Timeline/Drawing Preferences

Another change in Flash 5 that was a little hard getting used to was the new method of drawing and selecting.

Macromedia had the foresight to see that some stubborn people, your humble instructor included, would loudly whine and reminisce the "good 'ol days" of Flash 4's drawing styles. So they gave us the option of choosing which way we like best.

Edit the preferences:

  1. Go up to Edit>Preferences...
  2. Under Timeline Options, select both Flash 4 Selection Style and Flash 4 Frame Drawing.
Edit the preferences:

We've added 4 New Movies to our Flash 5 source files cd! These include detailed videos on:

1. Tell Target/With
2. Dynamic Text 1
3. Dynamic Text 2
4. Animated Fly Out menu Part 2

About the CDROM:
These movies are the SAME content found in our Flash 5 tutorials, but the quality is clearly better than the streaming, web-compressed format we have online with Frame Rates up to 20 TIMES FASTER and CD-ROM quality AUDIO!
