Tools 3

You will be able to zoom in on your stage and objects with this tool. Holding down the "Alt" key will change the pointer to a "minus" sign. This will enable you to zoom out.

A very useful tool which allows the designer to create circles and ovals of any size. Remember: When you draw a oval, Flash creates a border around it if you have a border colour selected. So if you don't want it there either turn the border colour off or click on the border of the object, this will highlight the border, and delete it. (these borders can be useful in your design)

Paint Bucket:
This will fill objects with a colour of your choosing. In a more advanced tutorial we'll teach you how to also create gradients. The paint bucket can then be used to fill objects with gradients. (check out the Ray of Light Tutorial)
