This used to be accomplished by creating an SWC file in the flash days and using something like Flash Builder. Is there an equivalent way to do this with Canvas projects?
I love using Animate to build interfaces and the simplicity of building MovieClips as game objects but the code editor is pretty basic.
you can establish references to the needed library objects in animate and then edit the js in another editor.
Thanks, I guess the is going to be the best it's going to get.
it couldn't be any better.
you don't have to figure out where in your js file you need to create a reference and, even if the object isn't instantiated with code, you can edit the reference in any ide you like.
