Chapter 1. Getting Started with Flash 8 > Getting Help While You Work

Getting Help While You Work

At some time, everyone has a question or two about the program they are using. The Flash Help system provides the answers you need. You can search a catalog of Help topics using keywords or phrases or using a table of contents to locate specific information. When you perform a search using keywords or phrases, a list of possible answers is shown to you in the Help panel, with the most likely answer to your question at the top of the list. If you need more instructional help, you can view a series of lessons in the Help panel under Flash Tutorials. The lessons provide an introduction to using Flash: Quick Tasks, Basic Flash, and Basic ActionScript.
