    selection tools

    khady_g
      I have only just started with flash, and I am having trouble with the shape tools. When I choose the ordinary rectangle or circle tool I I end up with a primitive shape. Added to that the selection tools only work to select the whole object, I cannot select a part of an object even with the lasso selection etc. How can I turn on these functions?

          first, turn on the 'draw as object' button on the tools pallet.
          second, double click on a drawn shape to selection a 'section' of it.

            No idea, never seen that happen before, nor anyone reporting that.

            Make sure the OBJECT DRAWING is not turn on, it groups shapes in to 1.
            Pick drawing tool, hit the J key. try to select bit of the shape. Hit the
            J key again and draw something, try to select again, to see the difference.
