I believe I asked this question already, but here goes...


I am an avid animator. I have a problem. Everything I draw on my canvas becomes a symbol, with a thin blue square border indicating it. It really cheeses me off. I don't know how to turn off this feature, and I would like help.

    click the rectangle tool.


    at the bottom of the tools panel, make sure the object drawing icon is not selected.


    draw a rectangle.


    is it a shape?
