The removal of the bone tool and motion editor was a big disappointment. I read in another post that it may be on its way back in a future update. Can anyone from Adobe confirm this and give an ETA?
I teach animation and have been using Flash in my classrooms for years. My university has invested a lot in the CC suite and is no longer licensed for previous versions that included the better animation tools. Due to the stripped out animation tools in CC, we are on the cusp of scrapping Flash completely and moving on to Toon Boom Animate. I'd hate to do that given the other capabilities of Flash but it has come to no longer serve our purposes. Can an Adobe rep please reply?
Flash Pro CC 2014 (v 18.104.22.168) is now available for download via the Creative Cloud App.
We have included an all new Motion Editor along with several other new features with this release of Flash Pro. The new Motion Editor is completely redesigned, intuitive and easy to use while preserving the core functionalities and backward compatibility with Flash CS6
To Invoke the Motion Editor, simply Double-Click on your Motion Tween span on Timeline (or Right-Click and select 'Refine Motion') and the Motion Editor opens up in-context in the Timeline itself. Double-Click again to collapse once you have made your adjustments.

(PS: Bone Tool is not available in the current release but we are looking at bringing it back in a future update)
