Moving Around with the Hand Tool

At certain magnifications, parts of the Stage may not be viewable. Use the Hand tool to quickly move to different parts of the Stage without having to change the magnification level. The Stage is the active area of your movie, the only area that will be visible in the exported Flash movie. The gray area around the Stage is the Work Area. The Hand tool allows you to easily access artwork or other objects contained in this space if you are doing detailed work at high levels of magnification.

Move the Stage View

  1. Click the Hand tool on the Tools panel.

    The pointer becomes a small hand that moves the entire Stage revealing other parts of the Stage as you drag.

  2. Click and drag the Stage to move the view.
