Collapse and Expand Panels
Flash CS4 Tutorial
How to Collapse or Expand Panels in the Flash Workspace
Panels within Flash can be modified to match your work style. Panels are displayed as a full panel, header only or an icon.
In this example we will view the Align panel using the different options.
Open a new document and choose Animator from the workspace pull-down menu.
Return to the pull-down menu and select, Reset 'Animator'.
The Align panel displays to the left side of the stage. It is combined with the Transform and Info palettes.
Click and drag the Align panel tab to remove it from the other palettes.
Click the medium gray header area once to hide the palette contents and leave the header.
Click the medium gray header area again and the palette re-appears.
Click the upper header bar once and it is converted to an icon.
Click the icon and the Align panel displays.
