How can I outline text in flash? For example if I select the box tool I can use outline.  But how do you do it for text?

Well, here we go:

When you have a textfield, you must break ik apart (Modify -> Break Apart)
Then, you take the the ink bottle and click on the outline of the character (use another color than the character).
After that, you can selecte the inner-side of the character and delete it.

Good luck,

When you have urther questions, feel free to ask.
