I am in the middle of creating a website using Flash CS5. I opened up my .Fla file one day to continue my work but I am no unable to access buttons and movie clips. When creating movie clips or buttons I am unable to get inside them, when I hover my mouse over them there is a white hand icon which never used to be there it was always just a normal mouse icon. I double click to enter inside the buttons/movie clips but nothing happens. This happens to existing movie clips and buttons on the page and even when I create new ones. Can anyone please help.. I really don't wanna have to start this website again!!
This would normally happen when you have a Button symbol on stage and the 'Enable Simple Buttons' setting is enabled.
Can you check in your Control menu, if the option 'Enable Simple Buttons' is enabled? If it is, click on the option to disable it and then try double clicking on your symbols.
In case you still face the issue, can you send across your test file for investigation.
Hi Sri nava,
Can you upload your file and share a link so that we can check what might be going wrong. You may just send a test file with your symbol copied into it but please make sure that the issue is reproducible in the file you share
