amy’s icon challenge

Amy Blankenship posted a neat Authorware icon challenge in this aware list thread. It’s a great list of obscure icon-only features and techniques – useful for solving some commonly encountered requirements. A nice reality check for someone who is guilty of being a little too quick to turn to a script to solve things that can easily be done with an icon or two.

Just remember – simply because you use icons doesn’t mean you don’t need to document your work. Icons need comments too. So if you’re going to use Edit>Change Properties to set the judged status of a cursor in area hot spot drop a note in the icon’s description or leave a comment for those who follow you (and yourself for that matter).
