Flash Professional CS5 is such a powerful program that it can seem overwhelming to new or occasional users. With Flash Professional CS5 Visual QuickStart Guide, readers get a solid grounding in the fundamentals of the most recent version of the software. Highlights include working with new-style text in the text-layout framework (practically a mini-page layout program inside Flash), working with the new Color panel and other updated interface features, a look at the deco tool's expanded pattern set, plus creating ActionScript using Flash's improved automatic-code-completion features and code snippets.
