Chapter 3. Modifying Simple Graphics

Chapter 3. Modifying Simple Graphics

One method of modifying Macromedia Flash graphics is to select one or more shapes and edit them by changing their attributes (such as color, size, and location) in the appropriate panels.

You can also modify the shape of an element. Some operations—such as straightening lines, adjusting Bézier curves, and assigning new attributes via panels—require that the element be selected. Other operations, such as reshaping a line segment or curve with the arrow tool, require the element to be deselected. A few operations allow you to edit the element whether it is selected or not—using the paint bucket tool to change a fill color, for example.

This chapter covers using the arrow, lasso, and subselection tools to select and modify the elements you learned to make Chapter 2. You also learn about using panels to modify elements'attributes.
