First, I just wanna say thanks for the years of awesomeness. Second, how long do you think it took you to get used to the interface in Flash? I've had it for a few months now, and I still find myself having trouble going from frame to frame sometimes haha.

If you’re having trouble going from frame to frame try using < and >.

As for Flash in general, I can recommend some great tutorials for getting your head around it!
