Symbols

To perform a number of tasks, Macromedia Flash depends on the usage and instance of symbols. Symbols are reusable elements that you use throughout your Flash documents. Once you create a symbol, which can be anything from text to a sound file, it is automatically tracked in the Library. Each symbol has its own timeline and layers associated with it. There are three types of symbol behaviors: graphics, movie clips, and buttons.

Types of Symbol Behaviors

A graphic symbol is usually a static image that is incorporated into the main Timeline. Interactive controls and sounds don't work within a graphic symbol's animation sequence.
