Using Frame-Based Versus Span-Based Selection

Depending upon how you like to work you can choose between two selection modes in Flash. The default mode is frame-based selection. In this mode frames are treated as individual elements. When span-based selection is chosen, Flash treats frames as part of a frame span, which means all of the frames adjacent to a keyframe are selected as a unit. You can accomplish the same tasks in either mode and you can switch between the two depending upon the task at hand.

Set the Frame Selection Style

Click the Flash or Flash Professional (Mac) or Edit (Win) menu, and then click Preferences.

If necessary, click the General tab.

Select the Span Based Selection check box to enable span-based selection or clear it to enable frame-based selection.

Click OK.
