How to change Photoshop CS6 SWF panel scale mode

Aug 3, 2012 8:01 AM

I have successfully created a SWF panel in Photoshop CS6 but the stage scale mode is ignored and I just cannot figure out why it doesn't work.

I have follwed the examples in the "USING THE ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE 6 SDK" pdf, I have created a working CSXS manifest and opened the panel in Photoshop and had the panel create a new document but I cannot change the stage scale mode.

I know it is possible because the mini bridge paneldoes it, so what am I missing?

    In your .actionscriptProperties file do you have additionalCompilerArguments="-includes=mx.managers.systemClasses.Mars hallingSupport"?

    May I ask what exactly that does?


    Of course! This reason this argument is necessary stems from the architecture used to load extensions. Each extension is loaded as a sub-application by an application called StageManager. In order for these two swfs to play nicely with one another you have to use something called the Marshall Plan ( has a pretty detailed overview of the Marshall Plan and why it's necessary).

    Another question : Why is there an empty grey strip at the bottom of the SWF when I use csxs:CSExtension in the mxml file?


    That's the status bar. You can remove that by setting showStatusBar="false" for your CSExtension.
