    Editing an SWF or FLA file

    MarkAnderson09
      I have both the FLA and SWF files for a website template I bought. I am trying to edit the file in Flash CS4 using the following instructions. But I never see any of this code - all I get are errors and the Movie timeline. How do I get to the code to modify it? I'm a total novice at Flash but I want to learn.


      Flash CS3/CS4 - additional changes

      There are some differences between Flash MX 2004 and Adobe Flash CS3, and therefore you need to make some small changes to the FLA file if you want to edit the FLA file

      To do this you need to open the photographer.fla file, go to the act layer, and then in the first frame you will see the following code:

      stop();
      Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";
      Stage.align = "T";
      _root.pagen=0
      _root.loadVariables("text.html", 0, "POST");

      You should replace it with the code below and then save the changes and export it as an SWf file.

      stop();
      Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";
      Stage.align = "T";
      _root.pagen=0
      _root.loadVariables("text.html");
