So I start up Flash Pro CC on my Win 8 machine and now I seem to have Span Based Selection turned on. I don't want it on. I read that I change this in the general preferences.

Here is what the preferences dialogue panel looks like:
preferences dialogue popupThis is what the official Adobe manual says:

Open in new window

I can find the Undo Levels, and Workspace, where do I find the rest?

If you look at the top of the image you uploaded, you'll see that the first option in the centre top of your image is 'Undo levels'.

If you want to manage your workspaces, that's not under preferences, but is instead under the Window menu (next to last of the menus) and you go Window > Workspaces, and then choose a workspace you want, or create a new one.

I had a browse through this big manual - http://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/flash_reference.pdf - there are 363 occurences of the work 'preferences' so there might be a bit of searching to do...

Thanks for your research. Actually, the screen grab of the preferences panel is lifted from the "big manual."

I forgot about the Ctrl/Cmd click and was looking for a simple click.
