Saving a Document

When you save Flash MX 2004, a document within the authoring environment, the document is saved in the .fla format. If you want to display a document in the Macromedia Flash Player, you need to publish or export the document in the .swf format. When you save a new document, you give it a name and specify the location in which to save the file. Name your documents clearly so you can easily locate them later. Also, creating folders and subfolders with meaningful names helps to locate files easily and saves a lot of time. When you save an existing file, the file retains its original name and folder location unless you specify a change. To retain older versions of a document as you update it, use the Save As command and give each new version a new number with the old name, such as project1, project2 and so forth. Saving your files frequently ensures that you don't lose work during an unexpected power loss or computer problem.
