The Stroke Slider is Frozen and one can not change its value. This is really irritating. But, this is not what we are looking for. To Change the Brush size Look at the bottom of toolbar. The last two options are ‘Brush Size’ & ‘Brush Shape’.

  1. Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to teach myself to use flash and I’ve only found bumps in the road so far. So this little thing you wrote here was amazing. Thank you!!

  2. Pick the shape of the brush you want and choose the largest size allowed. Now use the drop down menu that sets the size view of the stage to reduce the stage from 100% to an amount that you want to correspond to the increase in brush size. For example: reduce your stage from 100% to 25% to make your “effective” brush 4 times larger. Reduce your stage from 100% to 10% to make it 10 times larger. The size of the brush will not change no matter how small the stage you work on.
