You know what to do, just add this to you favorites.

Flash back

Oct 30

It痴 been a while since Flash graced my desktop.

It also took a while to remember how to move all my scene objects. The problem occurs when you want to resize the scene document. It would be ideal if once resized the scene objects would take up relative positions to the new size, alas they don稚.

I finally found the solution it entails using "Edit Multiple Frames" icon and setting this to cover the whole timeline, selecting all (ctrl-a), then you can finally move all your objects, this will not affect motion or shape tweens.

With the sudden requirement to turn some images into vector graphics I turned to look at these.

Autotrace also has a number of GUI implementations created by other Open source developers.
