.A7D is Authorware 7 Model

Model created and used by Authorware 7, an e-learning application IDE; contains a flow line segment that can be inserted into other flowlines.

A flowline appears similar to a flowchart and is one of the main features of the Authorware application. The flowline outlines the structure of your application with icons that can be dragged and dropped into the flowline. The model holds a custom structure of the icons (each icon represents a function) that can be inserted into a flowline. Models are very useful for maintaining continuity across applications, especially when working with a team of developers.

To create an A7D file, highlight your structure of icons, select File → Save in Model..., name the file, choose the save location (should be placed in the "Knowledge Objects" folder in the Authorware directory), and click Save. You can now choose the model from the "Knowledge Objects" panel.

NOTE: Authorware 7 was the last version developed by Macromedia before Macromedia was acquired by Adobe Systems.
