Flash CS4 Tutorial
How to Create a New Flash Project
Projects are useful when working with several .fla files or working with a group of designers. All of your fla and swf files are stored in a single root folder on your hard drive. By placing all your files in the same folder, it is easy to organize and open specific files.
Save your current .fla file in a folder on your hard drive. Choose Window > Other Panels > Project.
From the pull-down menu at the top of the panel, choose New project.
Click the folder icon to select the root folder that you created in step one. The project name becomes the folder name by default.
Set the ActionScript version and click the Create Project button.
The fla files in your project can be quickly opened by double-clicking the file name in the Project panel.
