I was copying a big block of text from a Word doc and needed to animate each list item with the text and I got the idea for this one.
This will take selected textfields and break them into separate textfields based on line breaks (returns).
Break text into lines.mxp
(backward compatible to Flash MX 2004)
Here are the updates to the Queasy Tools Flash/Animate extension.
New Features in 1.5.0
- Strong easing! Motion easing options now include in/out/inOut for Regular, Strong, and Bounce.
- Scale up and down buttons (hold SHIFT key to constrain to 100% increments, scale down with SHIFT bottoms out at 100%, so the scale can be reset).
- Fixed bug that occurs with text case options when multiple text fields were selected.
Download (Flash CS3 and newer, including Animate CC)

Thanks to Chris L for his suggestions and for finding the text bug.

A simple, self-explanatory Flash plug-in. On the right projects it can be a big time saver.
Invert Frame Selection.mxp
Ever get halfway through a project and wish you’d put everything into a symbol instead of on the main timeline? This extension takes care of that. It’s also helpful for combining multiple files into one.
(Compatible with Flash MX 2008, Flash 8, and Flash CS3.)
Convert timeline to symbol.mxp
Or, if you’d like to replace your timeline with a graphic that plays through once (within the graphic the original layers will be retained):
Convert timeline to graphic.mxp
I am officially addicted to making Flash extensions. It seems to tickle some very nerdy part of my brain.
This one sets the size of the stage based on a selected element. That element can be pretty much anything on the stage (shape, symbol, text, etc).
Compatible with Flash MX 2008, Flash 8, and Flash CS3.
