Subject: FLASH: PC to Macintosh - FLA files

>From the Flash 4 Read Me document:
Problems opening PC created files on a Macintosh: Double-clicking on a FLA file created on a PC will not open the file on Macintosh. This is due to differences between the PC and Macintosh operating systems. There are several ways to correct this:

1. Use the PC Exchange control panel to map the .FLA file extension to Flash. This will allow you to double-click the file to open it.
2. Open the file from inside Flash by selecting File > Open and choosing All Files rather than All Formats. The file can be opened and saved on a Macintosh. It should then open normally when double-clicked.
Use a utility such as Drop-Info or ResEdit to edit the file's Type and Creator.
Type Creator
FLA files (editor) SPA<space> MFL2
SWF files (player) SWFL SWF2

In the example, <space> represents the space bar character.
