  4. Using the Timeline The Timeline represents the overall structure of a Flash document and controls the content. The Timeline consists of layers, frames, and scenes that make up a Flash document. Layers appear on the left side of the Timeline and frames contained in each layer appear in a row to the right of the layer. The Timeline header above the frames displays the frame numbers. At the bottom of the Timeline, a Status bar appears, displaying the current frame indicator, the current rate indicator, and the elapsed time indicator. Sometimes it is hard to work with frames in a small view in the Timeline. You can change the size of frames and dis- play frames with tinted cells. In addition, you can display thumbnail previews of frame content, which is useful for viewing animations. Change the Timeline Display ◆ To lengthen or shorten layer name fields, drag the bar separating the layer names and the frames in the Timeline. ◆ To heighten or shorten the Timeline, drag the bar separating the Timeline and the Stage. ◆ To hide or show the Timeline Drag edge to panel, click the gray bar to the change height right of the Timeline tab. of Timeline.

  6. Working with Layers Layers are like transparent sheets stacked on top of one another. Each layer can contain different images that appear on the Stage. You can draw and edit objects on one layer without affecting objects on another layer. Layers in a document are listed in the left column of the Timeline. Before you can work with a layer, you need to select it, or make it active. A pencil icon next to a layer or layer folder indicates it is active. Only one layer can be active at a time, even though you can select more than one layer. A new document comes with one layer, but you can add more to organize content on the Stage. As you create multiple layers of related content, you can create layer folders to make it easier to manage the layers. Create a New Layer New layer Active layer 1 Click the layer or folder above which you want to insert a layer. 2 Click the New Layer button at the bottom of the Timeline. The new layer appears above the selected layer. Did You Know? 2 1 Flash names layers in order based on the highest number. If you add Layers 2 and 3, and then delete Layer 2. The next time you add a layer, Flash names it Layer 4. Create a New Layer Folder New layer folder 1 Click the layer or folder above which you want to insert a layer folder. 2 Click the New Folder button at the bottom of the Timeline.

Did You Know? There are several ways to select a layer. You can click the name of a layer or folder in the Timeline, click a frame 2 in the Timeline of the layer you want to select, or select an object on the Stage that is located on the layer you want to select. You can select multiple layers. To select contiguous layers or folders, click the first layer or folder, and then Shift+click the last layer or folder. To select noncontiguous layers or folders, A+click (Mac) or Ctrl+click (Win) the layers or folders you want to select. Chapter 2 Working Within the Flash Environment 35
