          Hi there,


          Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand you to mean that you want apply a default transition between the states that you have created.

          If you have not created several states, you may do so by clicking "Duplicate State" at the bottom of the Pages/States menu.  Once you have a new state, you can modify its design characteristics by making various elements visible in the Layers menu.  Then look at the bottom of the page on the left and you will see the Timelines menu.  Here you can select the state transitions that you want to animate (for example:  Page1 > Page2).  In order to apply a default transition effect, simply click on "Smooth Transition" at the very bottom of the page.


          I may have misunderstood what you are referring to as "Auto effects for new transitions."  If I did, I'll be happy to make another attempt to help once you give a little bit more clarification.

            "Auto Effects for New Transitions" is the item on menu Timelines, from the tutorial I read (http://blog.digitalbackcountry.com/2009/01/getting-started-with-flash-catalyst-tutorial) he suggest me to make "Auto Effects for New Transitions" checked, but I don't find that menu...Timelines menu just "Add Selected Object Timelines". How to active or show all item menu on Timelines menu..

              Are you using Flash Catalyst MAX Release, or another version?  That was the release that Ryan Stewart was using.

                  In the beta build you can use the "smooth transition" button in the timeline. This replaces the functionality for the "auto effects for new transitions" you were referring to in Ryan's tutorial.
