    Adding Premade buttons in CS5


      Hello,i'm pretty new over here and i have an problem.I'm currently using Adobe CS5 Dreamweaver and i cannot add the flash buttons which i remember were included into dreamweaver mx400 so i took a look over my cs5's directory and found these buttons :

      C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5\configuration\Flash Objects

      With 3 folders

      Flash Buttons

      Flash Buttons Preview

      Flash Text

      When i go to insert-media there's no buttons/flash object category.

      Can someone over here help me please?
      Lots of thanks in advance.

          The Flash text and other options were deprecated in CS4/5.  Basically it's not good practice to keep using them because they are not compatible with mobile devices and there is a push to move away from Flash to HTML5 for animations.  And for dynamic menus, CSS has picked up much of the slack.  You can insert an SWF object by going to Insert->Media SWF.  But if it's for a menu you should look into a solution from Project Seven or any CSS menu (there are a ton if you Google search CSS Menu generator).
