Hi, I am attempting to create a custom component and am following the official adobe guide. It asks that I put my component in "~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Animate CC 2017//Configuration/HTML5Components" (MAC) however this folder structure does not exist after "~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/" onwards.
I have manually tried creating the folder structure and continuing with the guide however the components do not appear in the components panel within Animate.
I was using the example file here to first examine the workings of a component.
Can anyone help me in regards to this? Has the location changed since the official guides were published?(Example of a HTML5 custom component , Adobe Animate Help | Creating custom HTML5 Components )
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
There is a typo in their example path, as well as being wrong. If you are US English the path would be:
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Animate CC 2017/en_US/Configuration/HTML5Components/
So, don't make any folders, but do add the language specific part they missed out.
Thank you, also it is worth knowing that in my inexperience I was unaware that ~ is actually a reference to your home folder.
Here's a useful piece of trivia, in Mac OS and now macOS you can select a path that someone gives you in any text you receive, then right-click, choose Services, and Show in Finder. Try it on the HTML5Components path example. It's a quicker way to get there, and saves any typing or copy and paste.
