Hey guys!

As you might’ve seen in a previous thread, I recently migrated to my macbook.

I’ve installed Flash, but something bugs me a bit. When I’m coding and I use the dot (.), the control menu blinks blue (as when using an item from the menu using a shortcut).

Then I looked at the menu, and found that ‘Step forward one frame’ indeed uses the dot as shortcut. The blinking blue is quite annoying, however, when I’m simply coding AS. The option is grayed out, so I don’t understand why it’s being called at all.

Does anyone recognize this, and/or do you know how to fix it?

That’s a weird thing. I’m on a Mac too. Juiced, do you happen to have more than one frame on the timeline at all when coding? The only time the control menu blinks blue for me is when I press the dot (.) if I have more than one frame on the timeline.

Yeah, I have 4 frames on the timeline.. I checked, and it indeed stops blinking when I have only 1 frame on the timeline. Odd, as it doesn’t serve any purpose in either one of the situations

I’m starting to get used to it.. ;)
