Now, I am going to pause this point because I mentioned that we pick some spots to change our elements. This is a perfect place to change that keyboard shortcut so that we do not have to worry about that again. I like relying on that Ctrl V for just a simple paste but I want it to be reset to paste and place command instead of the paste in center. So, let us really quickly change this up.
Now, I am using the macro media standard set. That is the default setting for the keyboard shortcuts when you install flash. You can see I could change to some of these other settings to make the program mimic some other control keyboard shortcuts like Illustrator or Photoshop if you like that.
Now, what I am going to do so I can modify my own keyboard shortcuts is I am going to start with the macro media standard set I am going to use the duplicate command right over here on the side. That will make me a second set of keyboard shortcuts just like the first but I can modify these ones. I will give it a little name here, I think I will call it Johnny Set, we will hit okay and now I have a new keyboard shortcut set called Johnny Set and I can modify it well.
Now, I have got my drawing menu commands here. That is referring to all the menu commands up here at the top. I will just pick out the edit menu. There you can see all the keyboard shortcuts that are already setup in the standard set. I just want to change this to a round. So I am going to go paste in place and I want to change that out.
Now, down here is where I can modify my shortcuts and I can just click into this window and press the keys that I would like it to be. I want that to be Ctrl V. Now, on the Mac, you are probably using Command V for that. By the way, your keyboard shortcuts will be the same on the Mac as far as the settings, and once I have got that decided what my new keyboard shortcut is going to be, I will just click the change button.
Now, it is alerting me that I already have something assigned to Ctrl V but will just reassign this new into it and there you can see paste in places now set to Ctrl V, paste in center has been changed out and just in case, since I might need that one, let us set this one up to the Ctrl Shift V that we had on a paste in place before. I will just add a keyboard shortcut to that one, go down and press the keys that I want, Ctrl Shift V or Command Shift V on the Mac, change, and I have changed my assignments around.
Now, as long as I am using Johnny Set, my keyboard shortcuts will be the way I have set them up. So, the next time we do this, I will not have to worry about and I can just use Ctrl V.
Now, a couple of more layer features that are going to be very important to us is also going to be this lock layer setting. Now, a lot of times, you are going to find yourself working on your elements and you want to isolate one element from the other ones. What is a little bit unusual about this program in comparison to other programs with layers is that all the layers are open, which means, I can select anything from any layer that I want to. I can select a flower and I could shift select a cloud or a leaf or some other elements, and that is going to come in very handy when you want to work on a lot of different pieces on the screen at once. But when you re trying to simply select a flower and you mistakenly click on one of the other elements, it is going to become a problem. This will get worse with a much more complex layout in the program as you go along.
So, very importantly, I can pick out a layer, use the lock column, and just like using the hide and show feature, I can select to the lock an individual layer. Now, this will keep me from being able to select, modify or move the cloud. And you can see but even when I try to click on the cloud, I am getting the sky underneath it. I could lock that layer too. So, it is a very great way to isolate elements. What you do not want to do in the middle of your project is accidentally pick something and worse yet, move it or make some kind of a change to it invertently, only hitting the undo key all day long.
Now, just like the hide show column over here, I can also use the lock at the top to toggle on and off all of the different columns at once, that is pretty handy, even more handy I think is a great little tip in the right click menu. If I wanted to work specifically on a flower three layer and I wanted to isolate it from all the other layers in the program, I could right click or Ctrl click with Macintosh and you notice, I have two options here pertaining to locking and hiding.
Lock others will lock every layer except the one I am working on. Now, that is a fast one click method of being able to isolate a layer you want to work on so you could quickly go in and start clicking around and work on the layer.
Same thing is true with hide others. The biggest thing I will point out is that this option is only available on that right click menu. So, be on the lookout for it. You will not find it in some of the other places in the program.
