How to Paint with Selected Fill Color in Flash

Select the Brush tool (b key) and set the Fill color.
Set the Brush Mode to Paint Normal and select a Brush Size.
Choose a Brush Shape.
Paint a series of lines in the workspace.
The Use Pressure and Use Tilt icons work with pressure sensitive tablets.
The width of your paint stroke is dependent on the current magnification (zoom) setting. The higher the magnification, the smaller the width.
Select Paint Selection from the Brush Mode menu. Then select an object and the paint is applied only to the object. This feature works with Merge Shapes and Drawing Objects.
Modifying Painted Shapes
Painted shapes can be re-shaped using the Subselection tool (a key).
