This is (welcome) news to me.

How does one determine *how* "fairly simple" the artwork must be? Is there some
rule of thumb for this? Is copy and paste adequate for transfering artwork from
FreeHand to Flash?

[Going back to *my* original task, which was to convert about twenty letters to
paths, and then morph each one into the next, it seems to me (after further
consideration) to be best done in FreeHand . . . each letter-to-letter morph
("blend") occupying several layers on one page in FreeHand, and the entier
transition from beginning to end occupying about 20 pages, then export the whole
deal to Flash.]
