The Stage

The main work area for creating Flash Pro documents is the Stage. It represents the visible portion of a Flash movie. Objects can move on and off the Stage, but the viewer sees only what's in the Stage area.

A new feature in Flash MX Professional 2004 is the document tab at the top of the Document window. Each document, including external ActionScript Editor documents, gets a document tab. When you create multiple-document sites or documents that require external files, the tabs make it very easy to switch quickly between the various documents and files. Figure 1.1 shows the Stage and two document tabs (First.fla and Second.fla) at the top of the Document window. In the figure, the mouse pointer is positioned on the First.fla tab.
