Assigning Frame Labels and Comments

Some actions cal for you to specify a frame of your movie—when you want Flash to jump to a new location or to get information from a keyframe, for example. You can always refer to keyframes by number, but it’s often safer to refer to them by label. That way, if you later add or subtract frames or move them around, you won’t have to respecify the keyframe number; Flash wil always find the keyframe by its label name. (You cannot label in-between frames, however; you must specify those frames by number.)

For keyframes that are not the target of an action, it may be more useful to add a comment that describes what’s going on at this point in the movie. You can label a keyframe or at ach a comment to it, but not both. You add labels and comments through the Frame Property Inspector.
