|Many of you will remember my snippets panel that I released a while back for Flash CS3. Well I have rebuilt it from scratch for Flash CS4. First of all I wanted to build it in Flex so I could take advantage of all the nice layout stuff. I also skinned the panel so it looks right at home with the other panels. Lastly I simplified the panel quite a bit to avoid bugs. All you do is click Edit XML and you will be able to edit it inside of Flash. When you are done just click Refresh to update the panel. The XML structure has also been changed to use CDATA sections for the code which makes it easier to create new snippets. You should be able to figure it out by looking at the XML file. Now it is important to note that the old panel will work in Flash CS4 and this version will work in Flash CS3.|
To install, download the ZIP file and extract the contents to your WindowSWF directory. You can find that directory at the following locations:
Windows: \Documents and Settings\[USER]\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS4\language\Configuration\WindowSWF
On Windows the path may be slightly different based on your OS. I’m sure you can do some investigation and find the directory.
