Adobe Edge Animate: The Missing Manual is full of details, explanations, and examples. This appendix provides quick thumbnail descriptions of every command in every menu.

Note

Adobe is frequently updating the Edge Animate program, so it’s possible some of these menu commands may not match your version. You can always find the most recent version of Animate at http://edge.adobe.com.
