EDAPT Commands panel

Functionality

Inter­ac­tive, cus­tomiz­able pan­el, pro­vid­ing but­ton access to EDAPT Com­mands.
It also allows cre­at­ing but­tons for non-EDAPT user-defined com­mands.

Suggested use

An always-on-screen but­ton-based alter­na­tive to using EDAPT Short­cuts to access EDAPT Com­mands. Faster, more intu­itive and user-friend­ly option than choos­ing com­mands via the Com­mands menu.

Users can can con­fig­ure the pan­el to their lik­ing, show­ing only the but­tons for the com­mands they need.
They can also ‘but­tonize’ non-EDAPT com­mands and access those visu­al­ly as well.

Mod­i­fi­er key(s) can be pressed and held down before click­ing a but­ton in the EDAPT Com­mands pan­el. This will call the alter­na­tive modes of the par­tic­u­lar com­mand, if such are available.
Exam­ple: Hold­ing down [ Alt ] while click­ing on the Cre­ate Mag­net Tar­get Or Cen­ter Mark­er but­ton will cre­ate a Cen­ter Mark­er.

Where does it work?

Ini­tial selec­tion before press­ing a but­ton varies, depend­ing on the par­tic­u­lar com­mand’s functionality.

Interactions

Click on but­tons (to exe­cute com­mand); Mod­i­fierKey-click on but­tons (to exe­cute alter­na­tive action in mul­ti­func­tion com­mands).
For exam­ple, you can Shift-click, Alt-click, Ctrl-click, Ctrl-Shift-click and so on.

Buttons, Dropdowns

On hov­er [ … ] appears at the right side of each but­ton. By click­ing on it users can remove the but­ton from the list or change its text, descrip­tion and color.
The [ … ] at the bot­tom-right of the pan­el dis­plays a pop-up menu from which users can add any com­mand as a but­ton to the pan­el. They can also reset the pan­el to its default state.

User-defined commands

Adding cus­tom a user-defined com­mand requires one to browse and select the desired JSFL file. Com­mands can be locat­ed any­where on the user’s sys­tem, but in most cas­es they reside in the Com­mands fold­er with­in Con­fig­u­ra­tion.
Fol­low this path to find the loca­tion of Flash or Ani­mate Con­fig­u­ra­tion folder:

Win: C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration
Mac: HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration

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

It is pos­si­ble that this path is hid­den by default. The fastest way to find­ing your Con­fig­u­ra­tion fold­er is described here.
