Flash productivity features that would be nice to have...

I am sure these kind of questions were asked many times by users, but for some reason, these features are not available in Flash, although to me at least, it seems logical that they should be..

But, it is either to complicated to implement them, because of how the Library/Symbol features are implemented, and we just need to adjust and use Flash in the few ways it can be used.

Nevertheless, i would like to have the option to:

  • swap a single instance at once on multiple keyframes on the Timeline,
  • rename a single instance at once on multiple keyframes on the Timeline,
  • duplicate and rename multiple symbols in the Library at once,
  • annoying Spacebar behavior: you have to click on stage before the hand tool appears and then you can move the stage,
  • distribute to Symbols - as in, select multiple shapes, txt, images or whatever objects you have on Stage, and convert them all to symbols on-the-fly,
  • rename multiple instances at once on multiple keyframes on the Timeline,
  • ...

 

these are only from the top of my head at the moment, i am sure people can add more of their own to the list...

 

If there are ways to achieve these, or at least some, i apologize and please do englighten me...
