History Panel : Flash MX 2004/Professional

Wed, Aug 27, 2003

You can now save the steps that you do in Flash authoring environment, replay them for your active Flash document. "The history panel can be used to undo or redo individual or multiple steps at once. You can apply steps from the history panel to the same object or to a different object in the document. However, you can't re-arrange the order of steps in the History panel. The History panel is a record of steps in the order in which they are performed".
A note of caution is that if you undo a step or a series of them and do something else new in the document, you can no longer redo the steps in the History Panel, they will disappear.

The History Panel even allow you to copy and paste steps in the active document and in between Flash documents. Saving your step(s) makes it a command under your "Commands" menu. You can share this steps with other developers as they are rather Javascript codes which goes into your "Flash MX 2004\en\First Run\Commands" folder, these Javascript codes are also known as "Flash Javascript" with the extension ".jsfl". Get a jsfl and just run it, it will run the steps saved through the history panel or scripted as a jsfl file.
