    TLF textMotion Editor

    Deco tools

    Bone tool (IK)

    Project panel

    New software with way less features.

    What a shame.

    Basically, almost everything I paid for in every version I have purchased over the years.

     

    Flash 4

    Flash 5

    Flash MX

    Flash MX 2004

    Flash 8

    Flash CS3

    Flash CS4

    Flash CS5

    Flash CS5.5

    Flash CS6

     

    I would stick with CS6 or later and call it a day.

    Why would Adobe remove features? I thought the idea behind CC is that we always have the best version available. I'm a student, and buyingthe full version isn't an option. That's why I subscribed to CC. Not cool, as half of my assignment uses the deco tool.

    :-(  Any suggestions?

    use flash cs6.

     

    if you have a creative cloud subscription, you can download and use it by logging into your creative cloud page, clicking the flash cc download and look for the combobox that lists flash cc.  click and select flash pro cs6.  then click the download button.

    Thank you for letting me know about the CS6 option but why in the world would Adobe get rid of a tool? 

    It's not doing any harm being there is it?

    ...Adobe...you kill me.

    I think CC was a total rewrite, using new engineers from India. I think they just had to prioritize according to what that team could handle in the time frame available.

    This is actually the first time I needed the spray tool lol. I'm sitting there looking for it like an idiot only to find out they got rid of it.

    I don't know,  I mean, they could have at least told everyone. Like when you open the program for the first time it can say:

    "Welcome to Flash CC. The following features are no longer available: blah blah blah"

    That's not so hard, is it?
