About Panels

In addition to the Toolbox, Flash puts authoring tools in panels—windows that can stay open on the desktop for quick access as you work. Some panels, such as the Color Mixer, let you set attributes to be used in creating new elements or modifying existing elements. Others, such as the Movie Explorer and Scenes panels, help you organize and navigate your Flash document. One crucial panel, the Property Inspector, lets you get information about selected elements and modify them. You’ll learn to use individual panels in later chapters of this book. For now, you will learn general features of panels and how to manage the panel environment.

To open a panel window:

  • From the Window menu, choose the desired panel—for example, Color Mixer (Figure 1.40).

    Figure 1.40. The Window menu contains a list of panels.


    Flash opens a window containing that panel (Figure 1.41).

    Figure 1.41. This panel window contains the Color Mixer.
