Since I am right now doing quite some Flash stuff both coding and animating / drawing, there's plenty of occasions I just want to throw something at Adobe's face. So I present you my favorite Flash bugs!
While coding, there is this really handy feature called "auto format" (or something) that automatically puts my childishly thrown together code into a sexy-ass shape in just one click. But in literally every actionscript file or code accumulation that I work on for some time, this feature simply refuses to work. I only get errors from then on saying things like "Error auto formatting in line 323", no matter how I alter line 323. :<
When I want to export an image from Flash that uses masks, those masks simply don't fucking work, no matter what I do. :C
Simply when drawing (with the brush tool) and there's alot going on (or even when there isn't!) sometimes Flash doesn't draw the stroke I just did like I kindly expect, but instead it erases the things that are below the stroke like if I used the eraser tool. :O
And sometimes it even erases the whole frame and just puts down the last stroke! And sometimes it doesn't even let me undo that!
I recently had a movieclip, a simple one, and when publishing as swf, the content of that movieclip was shifted like 50px verically. :I
I go to a frame and it auto selects all the content. It features a line drawing not colored. When I deselect funky-dope Flash goes like "I better fill in all those areas, yo. With black." Nice. All black now, time to redraw that shizz. :U
Good job, Adobe!
