Summary

This long hour looked at practically every drawing tool in Flash. You have learned how to create lines, fills, combination shapes, and text. After you created some objects, you found ways to modify their color, shape, size, rotation, and location. In addition, you learned about the two drawing modes in Flash 8: Object Draw and Merge mode. You even learned how to snap two shapes together. Even if you don't think you'll be creating artwork in Flash (maybe you're working with someone else who's the “artist” for your team), you should understand two important concepts: First, the simpler the shape, the smaller the file. Second, only shapes that are snapped together are truly connected. Of course, if you're going to create the artwork, thanks to what you've learned in this hour, you now know how to use the fundamental drawing capabilities in Flash.
