Lesson 3. Using Symbols and the Library > Editing Symbols and Groups

Editing Symbols and Groups

When you edit a symbol, every instance of that symbol is updated, including instances added to the stage in the main movie and instances that are nested inside of other symbols. Similarly, you can make changes to groups. However, if you make copies of the group and edit one of the copies, only the copy you edit will be changed. You will find it very useful to turn anything you plan to use more than once in a movie into a symbol.

In the next exercise you will edit a symbol and a group. Make sure you have zoo11.fla open.
