Understanding Library Hierarchy

Flash lets you store library elements hierarchically within folders, which makes it easy to organize the elements of movies that contain numerous reused elements. To further aid you in organizing the Library window, Flash allows you to sort items by column.

To create a library folder:

1.
Open the Library window.

2.
To select a location, do one of the following:

  • To add a root-level folder, select an item at the root level.

  • To add a subfolder, select an item within the folder where you want to add the new subfolder.

3.
To create the new folder, do one of the following:

  • From the pop-up Options menu in the top-right corner of the window, choose New Folder (Figure 6.7).

    Figure 6.7. From the Options menu in the Library window, choose New Folder to create a library folder.


  • At the bottom of the window, click the New Folder button (Figure 6.8).

    Figure 6.8. To create new folders and subfolders, click the New Folder button.


    Flash creates a new folder, selects it, and activates the text entry field.

4.
Type a name for your folder.

5.
Press Enter.
