The Bind tool in Adobe Flash Professional allows you to edit the connections between individual bones and the shape control points. This lets you control how the stroke distorts when each bone moves for more pleasing results.
By default, the control points of a shape are connected to the bone that is nearest to them. Depending on the configuration of an IK shape, you may find that the stroke of the shape does not distort in a pleasing way when moving the armature.
To access the Bind tool, select it in the Tools panel. It is grouped with the Bone tool
You can bind multiple control points to a bone and multiple bones to a control point. Clicking a control point or a bone with the Bind tool displays the connections between the bones and control points.
To learn more about working with the Bind tool, see the section titled Bind bones to shape points in the Flash documentation.
