The following commands are contained in most Windows programs - Page Setup, Print Preview, Print and Send, its appointment is quite standard and does not need additional description.
File / Preferences - allows customizing Flash to your taste.
File / Bitmaps on Clipboard (Windows only) - puts the image as a bitmap graphics into the Clipboard, in addition to the standard Windows Metafile information when you select Edit> Copy. It is useful when transferring information into the application that best works bitmap graphics images. You can select the format of bitmap graphics and resolution, as well as enable smoothing.
File / Size limit (Windows only) - restricts RAM volume that is used when transferring the bitmap graphics image into the Clipboard. Increase this value when working with large bitmap images or with those possessing high resolution. If your computer's memory is limited, select None.
File / Gradients on Clipboard - manages the quality of gradient filling in Windows Metafile, which is generated each time you copy elements in the Clipboard. Due to the limitations of Windows Metafile format, generating of these gradients can be slow. If you import back into Flash to accelerate copying select None Flash it always supports the full quality of gradients in the Clipboard.
File / Printing Options (Windows only) - cancels PostScript function when printing. This option is not selected by default. Select it only if facing problems with printing by PostScript. PostScript printing can be considerably slower if PostScript is disabled in Flash.
File / PICT Settings for Clipboard (for Macintosh) -) manages PICT information generated when using Edit > Copy. To save images in a vector format, select Object or one of the various formats of bitmap graphics. These options are similar to those available at PICT Export dialog menu. Objects with a resolution of 300 dpi and PostScript Included option are set by default. Gradients (for Macintosh only) manage quality of the gradients placed in PICT which are generated when copying elements into the Clipboard. Because of the limitations inherent in PICT format, generating of these gradients can be slow. If you import back into Flash only, to accelerate copying select None. Flash always supports the full quality of gradients in the Clipboard. Undo Levels determines the number of undo/repeat levels (up to 200). Undo levels require memory - the larger numbers you use, the more system memory will be engaged. Setting a large number of undo levels can add more memory required for Flash.
File / Shift Select - manages how Flash makes the multiple selection of items. If Shift Select option is disabled, clicking on the other elements adds them to the current instance. If Shift Select is enabled, clicking on the elements leads to the exclusion from the instance if the Shift key is not pressed.
File / Show Tooltips - when holding the cursor over the interface element it displays Tooltips. Disable this option if you do not want to see them.
File / Disable Timeline Docking - does not allow the Timeline to be fixed in the appliacation window after it was put in its own window. See Timeline usage.
File / Assistant - do not confound it with the Office Assistant, this one brings much more benefit, it is intended to adjust drawing tools. The list of the last four open files is called Recent file List.
