    I know in Photoshop working w/ paths you can "rebuild curve" to add more points or smooth out the curve, is this option available in Flash 8? If so, where?

    Use the pen tool to add/remove nodes.
    Or the options in Modify -> Shape to smooth, straighten etc.

    Hmm.. I was unaware that Flash was a "system utility" software, in college they taught me that it is a "Digital Imaging" software (that being what I use it for), so thats why i posted this in the "digital imaging" section. But OK!

    Anyways, how the heck do you control the pen tool? It automatically unselects whatever curve i'm working on, and only by small chance is it possible to re-select the curve w/ the tool, I usually end up creating a new line. Gr..... Flash is one of the most frustrating pieces of software ever created. If only the end product wasnt so cool...

    Thanks for the help

    Just figured it out, to smooth them out, you change the corner points to curve points (Circle indicators to square indicators)

    To do this you select the point, hold ALT and drag the mouse out, this will give you two handlebars.

    Yay.
