i tried to ask this question in all of the Flash forums but none of them had a "Submit Question" button so all i could do there is search without answers found. So i guess i've 2 questions:
1) how to prevent Modify > Transform > DISTORT from adding points whenever its used?
(IE: after using Illustrators Simplify function reducing from 73 to 32 Path points, saving the Path as .AI, then Import to Stage in Flash and finally using its Distort, it then increases the point count back to 73),
2) how to submit this question at the Flash Pro forum without a "Submit Question" button available there?
