Creating Graphics

  • We need to work with properties such as frame rate, dimensions, background color, and ruler units

  • We utilize the Tools Panel for all of our drawing and manipulating objects

Tools Panel

  • Four sections

    • Tools – drawing and selecting

    • View – change the magnification or position of the stage
