    Editing source files directly - possible?

      Hi there,

       

        We're just looking at Edge Animate with respect to creating some interactive elements for use in DPS/InDesign. Is it possible to make modifications to an Animate project directly in the Javascript source and see this reflected in Animate?

       

        I'm looking at a 'page' with a large number of very similar elements; I can bulk modify these by going to the Elements panel selecting everything I want and then making the change(s), however I could do this much quicker using find-and-replace in the Javascript source (myproject_edge.js). However, I struggle to get these changes reflected in Animate (if it's a change of position, for example) and have noted that it's not recommended to make changes here. Is there a (safe) way of working like this?

       

        Thanks,


      Toby
