    You can upgrade to FH9 or higher. Exports should anti-alias just fine, but
    there is no FH8 anti-alias preview.

    Not sure what you mean by "previewing the anti-aliasing" (is the work
    destined for screen?), but Fhd 9 has a "flash antialias" view available that
    might be close to what you seek. -Tom Unger

    Note that this "Flash AntiAlias" simulates the way a Flash Player will
    render objects when in its High Quality mode. Since the Flash Player doesn't
    support some FH objects and its rendering of some common objects is quite
    different from that of a PS printer, this mode is NOT recommended for
    previewing artwork that you intend to print. It should be used only when the
    artwork will be either exported as SWF directly or saved in FH format and
    imported into Flash.

    More up-to-date versions of FH have an antialiased screen preview that is
    appropriate for print jobs and replace FH9's "Flash AntiAlias" preview mode
    with a "Test Movie" function that is an even more accurate preview of Flash
    SWF output.
