Would you know if those fxg files are coming from the newer Adobe CC programs? I believe there
was a script in Illustrator that would allow you to export those files to fxg but I don’t
see it now. I think what I’m getting at, let’s say I reload my older Adobe Creative Suite
programs to create fxg files or even components and bring them over to the new flex, will
I run into compatibility issues, or maybe I can fix any issues in the code after the fact?

And that made me wonder if I just need to rethink how I create those assets and incorporate
them into development. I really like Flex and AIR, I can imagine a lot being done with these
tools (bringing them to fruition is another matter), but I’m having trouble determining
how to use these most efficiently based on my background.
