Lesson 2. Using Graphics and Text > Using a Guide Layer

Using a Guide Layer

Not only can you use layers to organize your content, but you can also use special layers called guide layers as layout and drawing aids. Guide layers are not exported in your Flash Player movie and do not add any weight to your final file size. Guide layers are noted in your movie by a guide icon to the left of the layer name.

Guide layers are different from guides. Guides can be only straight lines, and they are not actually contained on a layer. Guide layers can contain graphics of any shape, which you can use as visual aids for drawing complex art in Flash.
