Can't move swf

Apr 7, 2013 3:46 PM

Hello Everyone!

I'm brand new to web design and I can't seem to figure out how to move the swf text. In Dreamweaver 8. I'm just trying to center it some more to the right. Is it possible or did I mess up the whole site and make it not possible?

I'm probably not even doing this right! Oh well, any help would be awesome!

    Unless I'm missing something, DW cannot be used to edit SWF files.  You need to re-render the FLA project inside Flash Pro or whatever Flash authoring app you used to create this in the first place.

     

    As an FYI:  Flash is a dead web technology that is not supported by iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, etc...  The list of non-flash supporting web devices continues to grow.  Don't use Flash unless you want to alienate your site visitors.

     

    Use good old HTML, CSS and jQuery.  You'll reach a whole lot more people that way.

    Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) supports Flash Player - which is why your girlfriend could probably see the swf file. But keep in mind not all mobile/ handheld devices support it.

    They aren't the only ones that can't see 'into' Flash files - the list includes search engine spiders which is why nobody who understands these things would ever make a navigation element in Flash.

    Interesting re Flash-- Are you saying not to use flv videos on your website? What would be a beter video format? DW CS6 makes it real easy to insert an flv file (Insert/Media/FLV... ) but , of course, I don't want alienate anyone!
