Hi I'm relatively new to Actionscript coding and have a small problem in Flash. I want to track the x property of a symbol (in this case a movie clip) and display the x property of that movie clip in a text field. However I want the text field to update the x property of the movie clip as it moves across the workspace. At the minute all the code I have does is track the starting x property and display that in the text field. Here's my code: [CODE] var xCo = box.x; //Box is the symbol's instance name …

I have a Flash CS3 movie containing menu links. It works fine in IE, Chrome, Opera and Safari, but not in Firefox. Hovering over the menu, the graphic moves but then flickers repeatedly, and pressing the menu button does not take you anywhere. I read earlier posts here and learned about swfobject.js files and accompanying code. After googling it and doing some reading, I attempted it but the swf movie did not show up at all. I am not sure it is the fix I need, though -- do you think that's it? I am neither a programmer nor student …

In Photoshop, my JPEG image is CMYK. Once imported to Flash, the colors change to become brighter and more saturated. How can I stop this, or what am I doing wrong? Thank you!

I'm trying to reduce a large number of pdf files to text format. Acrobat has a batch processing feature that will convert the files, and also allows a JavaScript to be executed as part of the conversion process. I would like to add JavaScript code that allows me to replace and/or remove certain text/characters from the file. Examples would be: A) Remove all double, triple, multi-spaces and carriage returns B) Change all uppercase characters to lowercase C) Remove all punctuation What i'm really aiming for is to be able to run the batch process in Adobe, then have a javascript …

I'm looking to create a 3D environment for an escape-the-room game that I'm making with Flash. I'm hoping I'll be able to do it with the 3D features of Adobe Illustrator but am unsure. I need to be able to move the view-point angle in the pictures to take the screenshots from different perspectives. So ideally I'd like to make an entire room model which I can move the "camera" around at my will to position it [B]for taking screenshots, not for gameplay[/B]. I'll just be using importing the image screenshots into Flash, so after the game is made the …

Not everything Apple touches turns to gold, a case in point is the .mac service which has recently been rebranded with not terribly clever moniker: MobileMe. What Apple fails to understand from the get-go is that people expect their cloud services to be free or at least extremely cheap and $99 per year (you can’t fool people by not making it an even hundred, by the way) is simply too much to charge. If you look at most cloud services, they are free. Google offers almost all its consumers services free of charge in exchange for viewing text ads—no such …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]17138[/ATTACH]In an impressive gesture of goodwill, Apple has decided to publicize their app store review guidelines for developers, and has even lifted their restriction on third party development software. Yes, this even includes apps written in actionscript, the code behind Adobe Air and the ever-contested, Flash. While the does not mean that Flash is supported in any of the mobile browsers available for the iPhone and iPad, it does mean that developers can now convert Flash applications using Adobe's iOS packaging tool, and submit them to the App Store without fear of automatic rejection. As Adobe puts it, “Apple's announcement …

I have been waiting for three days now for someone in the IT department where I work to update Acrobat so that I can use it. I don't know why they're taking so long because all they need to do is log in as an administrator then click "update" on Adobe Air. It could easily be done through remote access and they're only one floor down. All I need Acrobat for is to save a PDF into an image but without those images, I can't update one of the pages on the site and that particular page is an important …

If this isnt the correct section, could someone please redirect me? Thanks. Now, onto the question (please note, I am inexperienced with javascript).

Here is a very short tutorial on how you can set your photoshop to produce Divs and CSS rather than the old fashion tables. This is very useful becuase this is becoming the new way to work with web pages and lets you add a lot more room to do stuff that wouldnt be possible with non expandable tables. ok once you have a document sliced and everything and you optimized all the images when you goto the "Save for web option" [IMG]http://img384.imageshack.us/img384/125/saveforwebbx1.th.png[/IMG] you will notice a little arrow next to your presets and on the border of the box …

[URL="http://www.adobe.com"]Adobe[/URL] has nailed its Android-coloured flag even more firmly to the wall than it had done before. The company hosted its so-called Android Conference yesterday in which it put forward the ways in which its software will be closely tied to the Google-owned operating system. It's not all positive. Adobe Flash 10.1 relies on some heavily functional hardware; not every new Android phone will work with it. Adobe is also refusing to certify certain FroYo devices because the battery power is terrible. The company will be offering a new developers platform, called Flex. All of which ties in with the …

Adobe Fireworks CS4 has common library of Symbols, that is located in the users folder: C:/Users/CurrentUser/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Fireworks CS4/Common Library/Custom Symbols The reason, i need to change the path to my custom path is the ability of using Symbol Scripts: When Symbol is exported to some folder, symbol script is created and this symbol is imported into some project (this or another), symbol script will not work. But when symbol and it's script are imported from standard "Common Library/Custom Symbols" folder, everything work fine. I need the way to change the path of Common Library to my own... Thanks

In 1987, Thomas Knoll developed a pixel imaging program called Display. It was a simple program to showcase grayscale images on a black-and-white monitor. However, after collaborating with his brother John Knoll, the two began adding features that made it possible to process digital image files. The program eventually caught the attention of industry influencers, and in 1988, Adobe made the decision to license the software, naming it Photoshop, and shipping the first version in 1990. It is hard to believe, but Adobe Photoshop will indeed be 20 years old tomorrow, 19th feb 2010. To help celebrate this milestone, the …

Adobe has yet to patch a critical zero-day vulnerability in Acrobat and Reader applications which is in the wild and being exploited by malicious types using malformed PDF files. Now, more than two weeks after the exploit was reported by The Shadowserver Foundation and before Adobe can get the patch distributed (it is due on March 11th I am led to believe) the situation has got worse. A lot worse in fact. It would appear that the advice to disable JavaScript in order to avoid being exposed to the risk is no longer valid after a security consultant demonstrated that …
