I draw using the pen tool because I like to keep track of how many anchor points my shapes have. If I draw a square with 4 points, I want to be able to go back and deform the shape by using individual points, it's how I'm used to animating. But with flash, if I create a 4-point square, I later come back to it to find that it has 20 points, and I have to waste time deleting points before I can move the corners. I'm not sure where all these extra points come from... could somebody tell me the best way to conserve my points and not accidentally create new ones?
I come from a background of After Effects where no new points are added unless you specifically add them, so this has been a bit frustrating to me. Thanks for any advice.
