When you first go to drawing object on your flash stage, you’re going to be in what’s called merge drawing mode. And in this mode, if you were to draw a shape that has an outline and you want it to move in, you grab a hold of it and it would go ahead and move for your fill but it wouldn’t move the outline or vice versa. If you grab the hold of your outline, it wouldn’t necessarily move your fill. And you could see here, I’m just trying to move it and it’s changing the lines.
This is what you can use if you really want to have exact control over every single item. Now if you would like to switch to another type of drawing mode, you can switch to the object drawing mode. And to get there, you’re going to have to go ahead and you're going to have to select some sort of drawing tool such as your shape tool.
Then down at the bottom of the tool bar, you're going to get the object drawing button. Go ahead and click on that and it’s going to change it to object drawing mode. Now this is going to be more like what you're like used to working with in word and in Photoshop. You go ahead and through the shape and it has an outline, go ahead and move it and it’s going to go ahead and keep that together.
So in those cases unless you care and do not want your stroke moving at the same times you move your fill, then I like working in an object mode because it makes it really easier to go ahead and to move my objects around. So that’s how you can switch between merge drawing mode and object drawing mode if you want to go back to merge drawing mode, then just click this button right here and it’s going to take you back to merge drawing mode.
