Saving the Button as a SWF

The next step in our Catalyst-to-Dreamweaver workflow is to save the button as a SWF, so we can embed it in a Dreamweaver web page.

Save your button as a Flash object by choosing File > Publish to SWF/AIR. In the Publish to SWF dialog, browse to the folder where you want to save the file. The filename will be the one you defined in step 1 in the tutorial in the preceding section.

The Publish To SWF dialog presents a set of checkbox options for saving your file. The first three options—Build for Accessibility, Build Version for Upload to a Web Server, and Build Version to View Offline—are generally the best settings for a Flash button intended for a web page. Select those checkboxes only, and click the Publish button to save the file as a SWF (see Figure 9).
