I have a flash pro cs5.5 project which i can browse in the project panel. (Window -> Project to open panel)
I went to the settings dropdown in the panel -> project properties -> paths tab -> library tab
I added a path to a swc here.
However if i open the startup fla of the project
and go to File -> Actionscript settings -> library path
the previously added path is not there!
Why are these two paths different?
The startup fla needs to use some classes in the added swc.
I only added the swc to the library path from the project panel.
I was hoping the fla will compile and publish swf successfully!
This does not happen . So what good is this project panel -> library path settings for?
I need to use the project panel library path because i am opening this flash pro project in flash builder and any changes to build path done in flash builder only reflect in the library path in the project panel back in flash pro cs5.5
Any ideas ?
the project panel is just a convenience panel for you to use to access your flash project's files without using a file browser. it has nothing to do with your publish settings.
if you don't see a great need to forego using your file browser, join the crowd. the project panel was an idea with no great benefit.
someone probably made a big to-do about it and got enough people to vote for the feature so adobe added the feature. and then found nobody cared so, it's not going to be in the next flash pro version.
okay. I guess ill leave it then... the only thing i needed it for was to get the flash pro and flash builder tight integration. I was hoping changing/adding library path in one IDE wud reflect a change in another but sadly it wont work that way. Ill need to manually add swc in both IDE
Thank you kglad.
