If you want to use the same publish settings across multiple movies in Adobe Flash Creative Suite 5, you can capture your settings as a Flash CS5 Publish profile that you can recall and use in other documents.

To create a new publish profile, follow these steps:

    The Create New Profile 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 Current 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. Choose Export from the Import/Export icon at the top of the Publish Set-tings dialog box.

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

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

Import a Flash CS5 Profile

You can import profiles you’ve exported to locations on your hard drive. To import a profile from another document, follow these steps:

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

  2. Choose Import from the Import/Export icon at the top of the dialog box.

    The Import Profile dialog box appears.
