How to Copy and Paste Objects in Flash CS3
When you’re working on Adobe Flash you are probably going to want to copy and paste certain objects and especially when you’re creating animations you could copy one object that you’ve created and then paste it in another area to stage in another key frame to help form your animation.
So how you copy is pretty much straightforward like how you copy in anything else. Go ahead and use your selection tool and select the object that you want to copy, go to edit and then copy and you have a couple of different paste options here. You could go to edit and then paste in the center and it’s going to go ahead and it’s going to paste that in the center of the stage.
You can also go to paste and place which you pasted it right on top of it. And we’ll go ahead and undo that. And then you could also do paste special. And if you choose to do it as a device independent bitmap then it will go ahead and it will paste it and that’s a complete image on its own. You cannot edit it now. So that’s some different ways that you could copy and paste in Flash.
