Working with the Project panel

The best way to avoid web development projects that become disorganized, cluttered, and downright confusing is to take advantage of the project management tools available in your development environment. The Project panel is the primary means to manage your projects quickly and easily in Flash Professional CS5.

Actually, the Project panel has been around for a while in Flash. However, developers often overlook this utility, which was completely updated in Flash CS4. The Project panel helps you do the following:

  • Create, manage, and visualize projects
  • Switch between project folders quickly
  • Open files for editing
  • Create files and folders
  • Test and publish project files
  • Bind external resources to your project

This article provides an overview of the Project panel in Flash CS4 and later and includes a tutorial to help you begin using the tool quickly. The tutorial guides you through the creation of a photo gallery slideshow project from a series of supplied assets (click Figure 1).
