Lesson 6: How to Draw Shapes in Flash CS3 - You can create simple shapes in Flash and then fill them with a color or pattern or use them as part of a drawing. You can create shapes using many of the tools on the Tools panel, but for more uniform  shapes, such as circles, ovals, squares, and rectangles, you can use the Rectangle, Oval, or Poly Star tools.
