Working with Symbols in the Library Window

You can create and duplicate symbols, alter a symbol's properties, change its behavior, and even edit its content and timeline from within the Library window—functions similar to those discussed in the chapter on symbols. Being able to perform these tasks from a central location can save you considerable mouse clicks—it definitely beats having to hop around to various menus, panels, and dialog boxes to accomplish the same thing. For more information about any of the tasks that follow, see Chapter 7, "Symbols."

To create a new symbol from the Library window:

1.
From the Options menu in the Library window, choose New Symbol, or click the New Symbol button at the bottom of the window.

The Symbol Properties box will appear.

2.
Give your new symbol a name and assign it a behavior.

3.
Click OK.

Your new symbol will be added automatically to the library, and you will be taken to its timeline and stage so that you can begin adding content. For more information about symbol creation, see Chapter 7, "Symbols."
