Re: [Flashcoders] panels / workspace CS4 bug

I never use Flash Prof. CS4 for coding because the Actions panel is not 
good enough, I just use it to produce graphics exported as swc's for use 
in Flex Builder.


Apart from the problems mentioned, Flex Builder 3 is great.

I have heard so many good reports of Flash Develop that I must try it 
again but I couldn't manage without the Flex Builder 3 debugger and I 
haven't yet exploited the profiler.

Or get a second screen and throw all your misbehaving panels into that.

Pedro, that works, but this way I惴 forced to always have this actions
buttons on the screen (when I press F9) and that is quite boring ,
cause (at least for me) it stands in front of important stuff . I 惴
used to F9 to open /close the acitons panel.

I惻l give a try on FlashDevelop!

thanks everyone for replying,

Re: [Flashcoders] panels / workspace CS4 bug

2009-09-18 Thread John McCormack

In Flex Builder 3 the project properties panels do something similar.
On the left pane are the options and on the right are a details pane.
The details pane often has it's boxes and tabs misplaced (off screen).
By dragging the separating edge between left and right panes you can fix 
some of it.
In some case you also need to wave the mouse, like a magic wand, and the 
tabs reappear.

In other cases I can't get to the options in the boxes.

Recently I find that I get a black hole (rectangular) in the topmost 
edited file's pane.

If I scroll with the wheel mouse only part of the pane updates.
Once I switch tabs and back its okay.
This hole may have arrived when I added more memory but I can't be sure.

It all sounds like the same kind of problem.

[Flashcoders] panels / workspace CS4 bug

2009-09-17 Thread Isaac Alves
why my actions panel on flash cs4 often gets its height (I don´t know
how ), higher than the screen height in a way i cannot resize it back
?

Thus, the only way out of this is reseting a default workspace, and
then I lose my saved workspace.

does it happens to you people too?
maybe I should try the flashBuilder...

thanks !!

No, but I get problems with the docking panel stack order messing up 
in CS3 - if I have SWF's that run @ the screen size, the IDE gets it's 
knickers in a twist sometimes and stacks the SWF behind the panels...


Only way to fix is to delete the workspace file - because I have to keep 
doing this, I made a copy of a working file and normally restore that 
which fixes stuff.


The GUI stuff has been really flaky in the last 2 versions of Flash - I 
hate it because redrawing is so slow, before you know it your panel has 
automatically snapped into a dock somewhere totally bizarre / invisible...

It often happens to me too and it's boring.  But you don't have to reset the
workspace, you just have to minimize the action panel by click on the top
darker bar, then open it by clicking the new Actions buttons and there
resize.

am i clear enough?

Try FlashDevelop - www.flashdevelop.org.  Flashbuilder is still actually
Flexbuilder and you have to pay for it.  FlashDevelop is the best free
AS editor out there.  I don't know why anyone would spend blood, sweat
and tears in the Actions panel in Flash CS3/4 unless they were just
doing some light coding on the timeline.  Just my opinion.
