Manual installation of EDAP Tools

If for some reason the EDAP Tools install script does not work, users can always install manually.

This can happen after an Adobe Animate update that breaks the standard configuration naming conventions or due to some other irregularities with the user profile setup.

Manual installation consists of copying EDAP Tools files to their respective destinations in Flash / Animate Configuration folder.

The program (Flash / Animate) must be closed while you copy files.

It is very important to note that the Configuration folder is hidden by default and you need to show hidden files and folders from your OS settings.

The Configuration folder is always inside Users\AppData on Windows and always inside Library\Application Support on Mac OS.
There are folders with similar names and content in Program Files on Windows and Applications on Mac.
Do not ever touch these!

Do not look for Configuration in any other location than the ones described below!

Before you begin, make sure you can see hidden files and folders

To show hidden files on Windows, in Explorer choose View and the put a checkmark in front of Hidden items:
Show Hidden Items

To show Library on Mac, follow the instructions in this link:

Below are the necessary steps to manually install EDAP Tools

Please note: The EDAP Tools team can only support with documentation and bugfixes the latest release.
The instructions below are for v.5.X.X of EDAP Tools. Previous releases had a different file structure.

1. Make sure that Flash / Animate is closed. Navigate to your version's Configuration folder:
Do not look for Configuration in any other location than the ones described below!

on Win:

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration

on Mac:

HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Animate CC YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration
Reset the Configuration folder (optional)

If you have had previous failed attempts to install via the Install-Uninstall EDAPT script, it is probably a good idea to reset the Configuration, just to make sure that there are no residual files from previous failed installations.
This will erase any other commands and plugins that you may have installed. In Flash CS it will also erase any customized shortcuts. Make sure you back up all user-modified files before resetting your Config.

  1. To reset, select all files and folders inside Configuration and delete them.
    Do not close Explorer / Finder.
  2. Start Flash / Animate. It will re-create a clean Configuration.
  3. Close Flash / Animate.

2. Inside Configuration create a folder called EDAPT.5.0.0
EDAPT Folder

3. Copy files from Source_Files in the unzipped install folder of EDAP Tools to the corresponding subfolders in Animate's Configuration.

Double-check that you have not missed any file!

4. Animate CC only: Locate the folder where you need to copy the EDAPT Shortcuts.

on Win:

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Animate\YourVersion\Shortcuts

on Mac:

HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Preferences\Adobe\Animate\YourVersion\Shortcuts

Copy EDAPT CC shortcuts v5.xml from the install folder of EDAP Tools. It is located in ..\Source_Files\shortcuts\

Paste this shortcut file into Animate’s Shortcut folder.

5. Start Flash / Animate. When the program loads you should see the EDAP Tools Welcome dialog.
Commands are generated during the first run and should now populate in the Commands menu.

Activate EDAPT Shortcuts from Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts… on Windows or Animate > Keyboard Shortcuts… on Mac.
