    Pen Tool in Flash

    xslamx Level 1
      Whenever I select the pen tool in Flash, in the properties panel it only gives me an option for stroke color, not fill, so I can only make stroked objects. I want to make a colored object without a stroke. How do I do this? (running cs3).

          Draw your object and then convert it to a fill.

          Modify > Shape > Convert Lines to Fills

            The Pen tool is only for making strokes - therefore the fill color swatch is
            simply not an option - if you want to make shapes then use any of the shape
            tools or the brush tool. You can always draw with the pen tool and then
            connect the paths and use the bucket tool to fill them.
