I realize this is no great secret in the flash world (changing your keyboard shortcuts). The default setting is (SHIFT F12). Like most Flash Developers / Designers we adapt to our surroundings. If that be using a PC / Mac / someone else’s fla / code / etc. Over the past few months I was presented with several projects where I had to compile multiple fla files. This is not too bad until you do cntrl+enter wait for the preview – close it – ctrl+enter review the changes and start the process over again. So I finally started to use (SHIFT F12) but depending on when I rebooted or changed my apple prefs I kept adjusting my volume and long story short it was getting to be a pain.
I personally like using CTRL and Backspace (DELETE on mac keyboard). The only drawback is that you may accidentally delete something. :/ But 99.9% of the time its uber quick.
To get to the menu just go to “Edit” > “Keyboard Shortcuts…” – Duplicate the current set. The “Publish” option that does not also generate a preview is under “File” and about 1/2 ways down.
Hope this helps.
