Default Drawing Line Tool


I'm a newbie using Flash CS4 and AS3. A retired social worker, I need to create a basic Flash drawing tool for an eLearning project to teach students how to draw their family tree.

The drawing tool would allow the students to add multiple circles and squares to symbolize their family members, plus text labels for names, ages, and they would need to be able to draw connecting lines between the circle and square symbols. Finally, in order to continue work on the drawing, over time, they would need to be able to save their drawings to be re-opened and edited (add new symbols, erase incorrect ones, etc.). Once the drawing is completed, they would need to be able to print a copy.

Being a newbie (but I have done some related scripting: JavaScripting-ECMA-262, HTML, CSS), I am not sure if this can be done in AS3, Flash CS4. But, if it is possible, I would like to learn how to create this. I would very much appreciate any help, especially examples that I can learn from, expand on.

Thanks for your help.

Kind Regards,
