Chapter 14. What's New in Flash MX 2004? > Speeding Up Common Tasks

Speeding Up Common Tasks

There are a number of seemingly minor enhancements that, because they speed up tasks that you perform over and over again, may save you a significant amount of time. For instance, you can now configure Flash's behavior at start-up, so that it automatically opens a new blank document, opens all recently-opened documents, or displays a start page that presents you with various options such as opening a new document or opening recently opened documents. Previously, none of these options was available: Flash simply started with no document open and no start page. (This behavior is still available, too.)

If you have several documents open at the same time, a tabbed interface allows you to select any one of them with a single click. (For some reason, the Macintosh version lacks this feature.) Previously, you had to use either the Window menu (click once on the menu, click again on the filename) or a keyboard shortcut. The tabbed interface may not sound like a big deal, but it is actually a significant improvement.
