Adjusting Elements

The Arrow tool also performs other adjustment tasks throughout the Flash program: for example, simple chores, such as moving objects around and grabbing preset points, or action options that manifest in various operating modes. Also, Flash takes selected elements—strokes, shapes, and objects—and lets you apply changes to them. For now, these actions are discussed only in the context of shape modifications. But it is important to keep something in the back of your mind as you review this section. Some of the actions you apply to shapes can also be applied to animations, letting you make the changes over time. This powerful component of Flash enables you to create grand effects in your final product.

Transforming Objects

With a single shape, or a series of shapes highlighted, choose Modify, Transform from the main menu to review your options. Here, you can make a battery of scaling and rotating selections to transform the element.
