Hey, thanks. I've been doing flash for almost a year now without knowing those except group but I'll try them out.
Thats good sh!t. Heres a tip to add to the collection.
When in free transform mode, hold shift while transforming to keep the graphic at scale.

Why the hell would i let it die, I worked hard on it.
As a Mac user, this list doesn't help me.
Mac rules, PC drools
P.S. Bumpers, constant bumping is grounds for a ban. lol
This information is right in the program! ...all of the shortcuts are on the tools if you hover over them (Edit>Preference>General>Show tool tips), or listed in the menu next to the options... you can also modify them or look them up under Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts... or, if you really want something to print out... go here! and download a list! :)
good post. seems like a over site but many dont know wabout the keybord short cuts...even tho there in the program its self list.
Hey, I have a question! I remember that when I first got Flash (it was flash 4 back then) there used to be shorcuts for the swf file. Like, > for next frame. But on the newer versions, I can't find anything like that.
Do they still exist??

This is not valuable information though. In Flash simply go Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts and you can see all this information and edit them all however you wish. Anyone bumping this topic from now on will be banned, let it die gracefully.
