Useful Flash Extension

Ajar Productions has produced a free extension for Flash that combines multiple selected text frames into one text frame for easier editing.

This extension will definitely be of interest to InDesign CS4 users who plan to migrate layouts from InDesign into Flash via InDesign’s XFL export feature. Text frames from InDesign will usually get converted to single line text frames in order preserve InDesign line breaks. This is great if you don’t plan on doing significant revisions to the text content once it’s been imported into Flash, but not great if do. This free extension–voted “most useful” at the Flash Camp Hackathon–will be a God-send to those of you planning on using the InDesign to Flash workflow in CS4.
