Issues addressed by the Flash CS4 Professional update | 10.0.2

Adobe Flash CS4 Professional (10.0.2) addresses issues regarding the compiling of large project files as well as the following key issues:

  • Performance issues when dragging objects on stage, scrubbing the timeline, entering symbol edit mode in large AS2.0 and AS 3.0 files.
  • Performance issues when opening large files or files with many nested symbols.
  • Performance issues when working in the library such as scrolling, selecting items in the library, dragging item to stage, editing symbol from library.
  • Several crashes involving creating a text field on stage and opening certain files.
  • Graphic symbol looping setting changes when apply color effect to instance in Property inspector.
  • gotoAndPlay("framelabel") compiles differently in CS3 versus CS4
  • Put back the JSAPI that allows users to publish FLA files without opening them fl.publishDocument( flaURI [, publishProfile] );

Bugs fixed in this release:

  1. AS2 Doc Crashes CS4 when buttons not rendered correctly

  2. Auto Format beaks the code if encounters ++ or -- with an array inside if statement

  3. Clicking through movie clip with large preview takes long to select in the Library in AS 3.0 file

  4. Scrubbing and pressing Enter to play timeline is not smooth, slower in AS3 documents

  5. Width and Height of instance incorrect after frame 2 if apply tween to instance with filter

  6. 3D tools appear incorrectly to a child movie clip when applying skew and rotation to the parent 2d movie clip.

  7. Changing Width/Height for nested 2d>3d movie clip from Property Inspector does not work. After scrubbing the  hot text , it snaps back to the original size.
  8. Dragging from Library to Stage is slow in some files in CS4

  9. Selecting items in the library is slow in CS4

  10. Scrolling the library (vertical scroll bar) is slow compared to CS3

  11. In a FLA with lots of library items, double clicking a symbol "in the edit mode" hangs Flash on Mac.

  12. Library contents explode CS4 memory (CS3 sits at 75M)

  13. Performance issue with Stagecore (AS 3.0 FLA) - scrubbing, moving, altering objects.

  14. Object visibility is compromised when created inside empty groups in AS 3.0 fla files.

  15. Double-clicking symbol or symbol name in library hangs Flash; library contains many items

  16. Text with device font disappears when it is selectable

  17. Component parameters don't work for scenes greater than scene 1

  18. Selecting frames with text fields is a lot slower if the Components Inspector panel is opened

  19. Empty mask incorrectly renders mask invisible rather than visible

  20. Crash when opening a  FLA that uses a font symbol. The font symbol name is identical to the Postscript name of the underlying font (and the font is missing)   

  21. Optimize a section within a shape leaves gaps in the shape

  22. Optimize opening and closing FLA files, frame manipulation for FLAs with many frames

  23. Win only: Crash on exit when the text field is in edit mode and clicking X button to quit without save

  24. Compiler errors when opening "Air Settings" while ADL still running.

  25. (screens) Timeline playhead can't scrub and jitters when playing anything that spans frames

  26. gotoAndPlay("framelabel") compiles differently in CS3 versus CS4

  27. Scrubbing the timeline and selecting frames is much slower in CS4 than in CS3

  28. Crash when creating a text object on stage when there are corrupted fonts

  29. Graphic symbol looping setting changes when apply color effect to instance in Property Inspector   

  30. Files with lots of nested clips suffer from performance issue (file open) in Flash CS4

  31. Edit in Place of 2d objects which has 3d movie clips nested inside is not functioning correctly.

  32. Edit in place is slow for complex instances in Flash Player 10 documents

  33. Breaking apart a nested movie clip erases instance name of child movie clip

  34. Efficient calculation between keyframes so dragging is faster and generally makes people happier if spans are long and complex.

  35. AS3 Components not compiling correctly when using the Component Definition dialog

  36. Windows Only: Flash crashes when double clicking a FLA to open while a current FLA is opened with text block selected

  37. Can't interact with Flash because modal dialog is up (but hidden behind the workspace) when switching between applications

  38. From crash reporter: crash on Mac when double click to enter symbol edit mode (when the black dotted rectangle is drawn)

  39. Mac IDE flashes when right-clicking on Library after doing Test Movie

  40. Performance is slow after double clicking movie clip to enter edit mode and exit

  41. Setting an instance's width or height to 1 makes W and H hot text unusable in the vertical PI.

  42. Hot text in the Vertical PI for X, Y, W, H displays only one decimal point while edit field displays two.    

  43. Export image: Dimension values in Export dialog and Vertical PI do not match which is misleading to user.

  44. Crash when selecting text field on stage with many fonts on user's system.

  45. Text Property Inspector is stuck and some controls on the PI are not drawn with certain fonts on user's system

  46. The JSAPI that allows users to publish FLA files without opening them was inadvertently removed when the Project Panel was deprecated.     

  47. "Export classes in frame" behavior is different in CS3 than in CS4

  48. Dragging large nested symbol from library to stage hangs Flash

  49. Dragging from Library to Stage slow on subsequent drag or after scrubbing the timeline

  50. Scrubbing and pressing Enter to play timeline is not smooth, slower in AS3 documents

  51. Width and Height of instance incorrect after frame 2 if tween applied to instance with filter

  52. Large amounts of text nested in a symbol causes performance problems in non-AS3 documents

  53. Play back in authoring is not smooth (playhead skips frames). You cannot stop it when hitting enter. It eventually hangs and takes long to respond (both AS 2.0 and AS 3.0)

  54. Performance Creating Exported Symbol when the classpath contains lots of files and folder

  55. Create ease, undo after first edit removes ease

  56. Selecting and deselecting raw shape after convert to symbol spikes memory and/or crashes

  57. FLA crash on open when fonts loaded

  58. Mac only: User input resets to previous setting when attempting to change any value in Vertical PI input area

  59. Accessing a Windows SWF after it has been moved or deleted crashes Flash

  60. Crashing when reopening FLA after  canceling  publish

  61. Crash in test movie when running a file with video and filters
