How to Create Publish Profiles in Adobe Flash CS6

If you want to use the same publish settings across multiple movies in Adobe Flash CS6, you can capture your settings as a profile that you can recall and use in other documents.

To create a new publish profile, follow these steps:

  1. Choose File→Publish Settings to open the Publish Settings dialog box.

  2. Choose a target, publish formats and specify settings.

  3. Locate and click the Profile Options icon next to the Profile drop-down list, and select Create Profile from the menu that appears. A dialog box appears, prompting you to assign the new profile a name.

  4. Enter the profile name in the Profile name text box and click OK.

    The profile is created and is an available option under the Profile drop-down list at the top of the Publish Settings dialog box.

To make your profile available to other documents, export it:

  1. Choose File→Publish Settings to open the Publish Settings dialog box.

  2. Click the Profile Options icon next to the Profile drop-down list, and select Export Profile.

    You’re prompted to name and save your profile (stored as a separate .xml file). Although you can save the file anywhere, it’s best to keep it in the Flash application’s Publish Profiles folder, which is the default location.

  3. Assign the file a name by typing it in the File Name (Windows)/Save As (Mac) text box, choose a Save location, and click Save.

To import a profile from another document, follow these steps:

  1. Choose File→Publish Settings to open the Publish Settings dialog box.

  2. Click the Profile Options icon next to the Profile drop-down list and then select Import Profile.

    The Import Profile dialog box appears.

  3. Browse to and locate the XML file you created when you exported the profile and click Open.

    The profile is now available under the Current Profiles drop-down list at the top of the Publish Settings dialog box.
