Organizing Actions

Flash idengifies each frame that has attached actions by putting a little letter a in that frame in the Timeline (Figure 12.3). But can you imagine scrolling through dozens—or hundreds—of layers, looking for little letter a's when you want to edit a movie's actions? That's a recipe for eyestrain. Create a layer just for actions, so that you'll know exactly where the actions are at any point in the Timeline. Also, with a separate layer for actions, you won't accidentally assign actions to two different layers at the same point in the Timeline, which could cause problems if you reorder the layers.

Figure 12.3. Keyframes that contain actions display the letter a in the Timeline.
