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:If you don't see a symbol listed in the Library window (one that you know you've created), what is the likely cause?
  1. You have an outdated version of Flash and should get the upgrade.

  2. You're either not looking at the Library window for the current file or the symbol is hiding in a folder.

  3. You forgot to name the symbol; therefore, it isn't listed.

A1: B. A Library from another file can fool you, and putting symbols in folders can effectively hide them from your view. Consider, too, that answer C can't be correct because all symbols must have a name.
2:What are the clues that you are currently editing the master version of a particular symbol?
  1. The address bar will contain your symbol's name and a big plus sign appears in the middle of the screen.

  2. The Properties panel is grayed out.

  3. The symbol is highlighted in the Library window.

A2: A. The address bar is the main clue you're in the Library.
3:Should you consider another color style setting instead of Alpha when you simply want an instance to be faded back?
  1. No, nothing beats Alpha.

  2. Yes, never use Alpha.

  3. If the instance is not on top of anything else, then, yes, you should consider Brightness or Tint instead.

A3: C. If the Alpha color effect is used, it's only effective (and therefore “worth it”) when it's on top of something that can show through it. Brightness and Tint can be used for the same effect, and both will perform better on slower machines.
