Chapter 20. Automating Your Work > Copying Steps Between Documents

Copying Steps Between Documents

Each document only tracks its own set of steps in the History panel. When you close a document, Flash clears the History panel. If you want to use a set of steps in another document, you need to copy them from one History panel and paste them to another document. You can use the Copy Steps button on the History panel or the same command on the Options menu to complete the task. When you paste steps into another document, Flash replays the steps and the History panel shows the steps as only one step called Paste Steps (Mac) or Paste (Win).

Copy Steps Between Documents

Open a document containing the steps you want to copy.

Open or expand the History panel.

Select the steps in the History panel you want to copy.

Click the Copy Steps button in the History panel.

Open the document into which you want to paste the steps.

Select the objects to which you want to apply the steps.

Click the Edit menu, and then click Paste In Center.

The steps play in the document as Flash pastes the steps into the History panel of the document. The steps appear in the History panel as a single step called Paste Steps (Mac) or Paste (Win).

When you're done, click the Close button on the History panel.
