Tools 2

This tool moves your whole movie around the stage and saves you from having to select everything or move individual frames.

To quickly use the hand tool without selecting it from the tool bar hold the space bar down. You will notice your mouse pointer will change into the hand tool. Now drag the stage and when you're finished let to of the space bar.

Ink Bottle:
This tool creates lines around objects. For example, after selecting the tool and clicking on a circle object it will create a circular line around it. This can then be turn into a separate object.

This is used for selecting single or multiple objects in hard to reach places by allowing you to draw a line which then becomes the selection.

This tool does what the title suggests. It draws lines. Useful for drawing polygons and other weird shapes the Oval and Rectangle tools can't deal with.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
