Set up your workspace

First, you’ll open the start file for the lesson and set up your workspace to use an optimal layout for taking lessons.

1.
To open your start file, in Flash select File > Open and navigate to the file:

  • In Windows, browse to boot drive\Program Files\Macromedia\ Flash 8\Samples and Tutorials\Tutorial Assets\Basic Tasks\ Add Button Animation and Navigation and double-click buttons_start.fla.

  • On the Macintosh, browse to Macintosh HD/Applications/ Macromedia Flash 8/Samples and Tutorials/Tutorial Assets/ Basic Tasks/Add Button Animation and Navigation and double-click buttons_start.fla.

Note

The Add Button Animation and Navigation folder contains completed versions of the tutorial FLA files for your reference.

2.
Select File > Save As and save the document with a new name, in the same folder, to preserve the original start file.

3.
Select Window > Workspace Layout > Default to set up your workspace for taking lessons.

4.
In the Stage View pop-up menu, in the upper-right side of the Timeline, select Show Frame to view both the Stage and the workspace.
