    V2 has more

    When you open up or apply an sfx look at the drop down menu for the effect name. You can save your sfx's now. as opposed to opening one swi copying the effect and pasting it into the next swi.
    No only that but you can download other peoples customized effects
    Check out these
    When saving an sfx off the web store them in SWiSH2/effects
    They will be visible when you need them.

    Just don't overdo it the drop down menu can only contain so many effects the effects will still be in the folder you just wont be able to apply them

    happy swishing

    In V2 some effects where renamed, because the names caused confusion because weren't really describing what was happening.

    Show -> Place .. it actually places the object, not just hides it so it cannot be seen, the object is not even placed on the stage beforehand, does not respond to mouse ecents etc

    Hide -> Remove .. for the same reasons as above

    Transform -> Move .. it is for moving the whole object, and the name transform got confused with the transform tab, transform panel etc.

    Scale Characters -> Transform .. because it did (and does) a lot more than just scale characters .. it could rotate, fade etc. If someone can think of a better name than "Transform", then let me know !!
