This is a wonderful forum! Very helpful.
I just downloaded and installed Flash Catalyst Beta 2 from http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashcatalyst/. However, I do not see the ability to add custom interactions to out of the box or custom components. I know that in Beta 2 interactions have been moved to the right panel. However, there too I do not get the option to add custom interactions as I see in some of the tutorials that I am referring to. Example: http://active.tutsplus.com/articles/reviews/flash-catalyst-beta-first-look/
I don't see ability to add application interactions or these advanced interactions. I only get some basic options like on-click, rollover etc and can only pick from a predefined number of components (not sure if this UI gives more options that I see in the version that I have installed, but I am guessing it does).
Thanks in advance for your help!
The Interactions panel is context-sensitive. To define an On Application Start interaction, you have to make sure you have nothing selected on the artboard.
The so-called "custom interactions" and "application interactions" have all been rolled into one thing: the interactions panel.
To create an application interaction, click "+ Add Interaction" with nothing selected.
Some components have component-specific interactions (e.g. Data List has an "on change" interaction). To access these, first select the component that is the source of the interaction, then click "+ Add Interaction".
