Chapter 1. Getting Started with Flash 8 > Creating a New Document

Creating a New Document

A file in Flash is called a document. Flash documents, which have the .fla filename extension, contain all the information required to develop, design, and test interactive content. Flash documents are not the same as the movies you play with the Flash Player. Instead, you publish your Flash documents as Flash movies, which have the .swf filename extension and contain only the information needed to display the movie. When you open a new Flash document, it’s blank, ready for you to create or insert text, graphics, and other media content. By default, the first Flash document is titled Untitled1. You can create new documents in several ways: using the New command on the File menu, and by the New Document task pane. Flash numbers new documents consecutively. You can open and work on as many new documents as you’d like.
