---Project Description:-------------------------

we need to make a tool that has 3 JSFL commands.

1. "Start Tile"
2. "End Section"
3. "Special Undo"

(Here's ideally how it would work)

1. I open up a file that has a design similar to this one:
Click for Image (http://simulat.com/tmp.jpg)

2. I click "Start Tile" JSFL.

3. I choose my paint bucket tool and click and color in areas within
the design. I paint in 10 enclosed areas in the design.
For every click, JSFL will store the coordinates of each click in an array.

4. I click "End Section" JSFL. This goes back to the stored array of
coordinates and SHIFT+SELECTS each point so that all 10 enclosed painted
shapes become selected. Then it creates a symbol (F8) out of those shapes,
names the library symbol "s1" (section 1) and names the instance on the stage "s1".
Next, it cuts the symbol from the stage and pastes into place into its own layer,
BELOW the current layer and locks the layer.

5. Now im back to my paint bucket tool creating another group of 10 enclosed
areas which would make up my second group of shapes, section 2,
Steps 3 and 4 repeat themselves as I make a dozen groups of shapes into symbols.

6. If, while im painting in step 3, i mess up and paint the wrong thign, then i click
"Special Undo" JSFL which calls a normal undo and also pops off the last coordinate
of array that stores coordinates.

By the way you might be wondering why a tool like this.
Heres a little bit of a higher level overview of what its intended use:

We are converting masses of illustrator designs to flash for like a "color by number" application, the shapes within the enclosed areas need to be turned into groups of shapes in a movieclip to be used as a mask.

Essentially what the tool assists in converting filled areas in a design to
ordered by name (s1,s2,s3...) movieclips

If my descriptions are too vague or complicated, but you are interested
please email me your country code and phone number and the best time to call
so we can discuss. (english only)

... not to steel anyone's potential gold pot there but this doesn't seem so hard and you could have probably been able to get someone to show you how to do it for free.
