When I import PNG files into Flash CS6 it no longer automatically creates Symbols!

In Flash CS5 when I imported PNG files, it automatically created a suite of Symbols to match the PNG files - a great time-saver, but I've now installed CS6 and it no longer does it!  Yikes, this feature saved me loads of time.

 

Can it be turned on or off by user selection?

 

Please, if you know how to turn it on, let me know

 

Thanks

 

John

    Didn't you ask this same question a week ago?

    I will try and verify if this as designed, however, (as my already know) you could select multiple PNG files and convert them to symbols. In the meanwhile, you could log a bug against Flash Authoring at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform&promoid=E WQQL.

    Hi,

     

    An easy way is to bring them (as many as you can) on to the stage, do a multiple select (ctrl + A), right-click, and select Convert to Symbol option. Please let me know if that worked for you.
