Edit a Symbol p. 21

  • When you have an object on the Stage that is a container for other objects (groups, symbols and text boxes) you can just double-click it to “get inside” and edit the contents.

  • To exit the editing mode of the container, you can double-click outside the bounds of the container.

  • Sometimes when you draw a line in Flash, it isn't placed at the top of the object stacking order like you'd expect it to be. Instead, it is placed behind other objects. Defying the standard convention that a new object is stacked above existing objects on the same layer, Flash stacks lines based on a mysterious formula involving the line's color that only programmers could come up with!

    You can do one of two things to make the line appear where you want it: group the line, which moves it to the top of the stack; or move the line to a layer above the current layer.
