Lesson 4. Working with Behaviors > Adjusting Behaviors in the Dashboard

Adjusting Behaviors in the Dashboard

The timing is good—both watches are moving. But there's just one problem: The watches are moving in exactly the same way. The motion looks repetitive and becomes distracting. That's definitely not our goal. Let's adjust the behaviors on the Time Bomb watch so that it moves in the opposite direction of the Detonator watch. You'll be using skills you've already learned in this lesson to perfect your watch movements.

1.
Press D to open the Dashboard, if it's not already open.

2.
In the Canvas, select the Time Bomb watch, if it's not already selected.

3.
Press D four times to toggle through all of the behaviors in the Dashboard.

This is one method for viewing the different behaviors applied to an object.

Switching Dashboards Using the Title Bar Pop-up Menu

The Dashboard includes a pop-up menu that allows you to select all behaviors and effects applied to an object. To open this menu, you simply click the downward-pointing arrow next to the object name in the Dashboard title bar.

1.
Click the downward-pointing arrow in the Dashboard title bar to open the pop-up menu.

2.
Choose Throw from the pop-up menu to open the Throw Dashboard.

Let's move the Time Bomb watch downward and to the left, to contrast it with the Detonator watch, which moves upward and to the right.

3.
Drag the Throw arrow downward and to the left.

4.
Open the pop-up menu in the title bar again and choose time_bomb to view the object in the Dashboard and mini-Timeline.
