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\ Creating Graphics\Timeline Animation and double-click animation_start.fla.

  • On the Macintosh, browse to Macintosh HD/Applications/Macromedia Flash 8/Samples and Tutorials/Tutorial Assets/Creating Graphics/Timeline Animation and double-click animation_start.fla.

Note

The Timeline Animation folder contains completed versions of lesson 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 modify 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.

5.
If necessary, drag the lower edge of the Timeline (Window > Timeline) down to enlarge the Timeline view.
