Getting started!

Open up a new flash window. Select the Text Tool and create a text field somewhere on the stage. In the text field we just created, we type "Press 'A' to abort or 'C' to continue". This text field is not required but tells the user what to do. We set it to Static Text and not Selectable in the property window.

Now we'll create annother text field by selecting the Text Tool. Before clicking somewhere on the stage, we need to change the type to Dynamic Text in the property bar. This text field we're going to leave empty, but need to adjust it's properties. In the properties bar we'll give it an variable name, I used "charshow".

Now your stage should contain two text fields, one static with text and one dynamic with no text.
