Chapter 10. Creating Masks > Editing a Mask

Editing a Mask

Masks are editable. Which type of element you are using in the mask layer defines the procedure for editing: editable shapes can be modified with Flash's drawing tools, while groups and symbols must be edited in their own editing modes. Regardless, Flash only concerns itself with the fill area. Changes to color, alpha, and other such attributes are ignored. To edit a mask you must first unlock it. To view your changes, simply re-lock the mask layer and all of its linked layers.

Edit a Mask

If the mask layer is locked, click on the lock icon in the Lock Layer column to unlock the layer and enable it for editing.

Edit the shape of the mask or if using a group or symbol, enter the group or symbol's editing mode.

Relock the mask layer and any linked layers to view changes.
