The flash tutorials in the Cafu Wiki have been created using the DebugMode Wink software by Satish Kumar. Wink is freely available and works very well.
Wink is an excellent tool for creating flash tutorials especially for the Cafu World Editor “CaWE”. This pages lists tips and tricks about using Wink with CaWE, as well as some guidelines that are intended to achieve consistent impression and design across all Cafu related tutorials, even if the tutorials have been made by different persons.

File → Open…, the dialog starts in the right directory.
