I do a lot of multimedia presentations for events/awards/summits using flash where I have to assign numbers/letters to call certain screens (eg. a speaker screen) at any time, and I understand Adobe have disabled the keypress functions entirely when publishing out of CS5.
Is it at all possible to bypass this and allow the key presses to be enabled? Or is this pretty much a “like it or lump it” it doesn’t work anymore issue.
The only work around I have been able to work out is to save down to CS4 and publish from that, which kind of seems a bit silly and backwards.
I see Director is still alive, am I going to have to switch back to that after 10 years… i really don't want to do that.
i don't think it will matter what cs version you use to publish. what matters is the player version used to display your swf.
however, if you use an exe or air app, you can probably still capture keypresses even in fullscreen.
