Drawings disappearing on mouse release

Mar 24, 2012 1:33 PM

Hey guys im new to flash to probaly hit a keyboard shortcut that broke this... but when i draw anything using any tool on a layer it disappears as soon as i release the mouse button, then when i click the timeline it reappears again but when you are drawing having your image not on the screen makes it kind of impossible do draw anything

 

I saw another guy with a similar problem who made this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzAifvHmZSs

 

I tried reinstalling the software ( im using the demo) whats going on? I was hoping to get to play around abit before my trial ended

    In the timeline window, there are three option buttons next to each layer's name: visible, locked, outline. You have probably clicked on the outline option and set your layer to show only the outline view of that layer. Hit that option button to show the layer's contents.
