I have a student who created a small animation with an introduction and then in the middle she wants to do a stop action (which works) then add a play button to play the rest of the animation. We are trying to use Action Script 2.0 - we have CS4 and they were taught with the instruction book to use 2.0 in the class. Help?
Sorry guess I should of given more information - when we try to click on the button to add the action we get the Current Selection cannot have actions applied. So now she can't add in any play button in the middle of the animation. Can this be fixed?
Based on that message, Esdebon is likely giving you the correct solution. AS3 does not allow objects the have code applied to them, and that message is an AS3 message. If you check your Publish Settings you will probably find that AS3 is selected instead of AS1/2.
Nope the file was created in Action Script 2.0 and we switch it to Action Script 1.0/2.0 in the drop down menu and it will still say Current selection cannot have actions applied to it - we check publish settings and it says AS1/2
