Well just like it says, I can't find any filters.
I all I want to do is make something Blur, that's it.
I've done it in Flash 5 before. Plenty of times, now why can't I do it here?
I looked up countless tutorials and helps, and they say "Just open the Filters SubPanel in the Properties Menu" and I look, and it's not there.
I go into the windows, nothing about filters.
I've got Flash CS5. Help me find some filters?
I am encountering the same problem. I'm running Flash CS5 on a brand new iMac computer running OS 10.6.6. My specific complaint is that I can't find any flters listed at all in my Filters menu within the Properties Panel. My general complaint is that Flash seems "buggy". I often can't replicate exercises found in the Adobe or Lynda.com Flash instruction tutorials for CS5, despite doing every procedure demonstrated to the letter.
To repeat, when I open up the Filters menu in the Properties Panel to add a filter to a Text Field (as suggested and shown in the Lynda.com tutorial) I see NO filters present at all in my Filters menu.
I have reinstalled my Adobe CS5 Master Collection twice already to try and resolve Flash's poor performance issues, to little effect. What is wrong with my Flash CS5 program that it is performing so poorly? And how can I get my library of Flash filters to show up in the Filters Menu? Any helpful suggestions would be most appreciated. My calls to Adobe directly are always routed to overseas call centers, where after ineffectually mincing with scripted promises of help for 15 minutes, a robotic tech support person finally tells me they will have to call me back, which they never do (I couldn't be more unhappy with the byzantine structure of Adobe's technical support system).
Thanks for any offer of help to resolve this matter!!!
If it helps, I just had the same problem on Mac with CS4 / CS5. Thought I was going mad as I saw the Filters panel and then a little while after it had disappeared.
I realised it was due to changing my Publish Settings. If you target Flash Player v7 or lower, the filters don't show. Flash Player v 8 or higher will show the Filters panel.
Having the Filters panel showing with a message that it's unsupported for the Flash Player version I had targeted would have been much clearer!
Hope this helps someone else.
