The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered. Try to answer the questions before checking the answers.


1:What happens if you change both the stroke color and the fill color to “no color” and try to use the Rectangle tool?
  1. Shapes drawn will be black (the absence of color).

  2. You can try to draw, but nothing will appear onscreen.

  3. Flash crashes, and you'll learn never to try this again.

A1: B. This is actually pretty unlikely to happen because only when the Rectangle tool or the Oval tool are selected can you set both the fill and stroke to “no color.” And you can do so only from the Tool panel, as the Properties panel prevents such an occurrence.
2:The quick-key for the Arrow tool is “A,” the Pencil is “Y,” and the Brush is “B.” Where's the best place to find the quick-keys for the other tools?
  1. The front of this book.

  2. The Macromedia Web site.

  3. Just roll your cursor over the tool and wait, and the answer will appear under your nose.

A2: C. Although answers A and B may be true, the simplest way is to use the tooltips. By the way, although the default is “Show Tooltips,” this can be changed under Edit, Preferences.
3:Is there more than one way to set the fill color?
  1. Yes. Any place you see a swatch, you can set fill color.

  2. Yes. There are many places where the fill color swatch appears, and setting any of them affects all the others.

  3. No. You must set the fill color from the fill swatch in the drawing toolbar (the swatch with the bucket icon).

A3: B. You don't need to memorize all the places where the fill swatch appears. Any fill swatch will do. Of course, you can't change the fill color by adjusting just any swatch—it must be a fill swatch (not a stroke swatch).
