I'm having some trouble here.  I have an animation with a symbol that has a timeline in it (containing two motion tweens) that will not pause when the swf is paused.

 

How can I make sure that if I pause the animation ALL symbols will pause as well?

    Each movieclip runs independently, so you'll have to tell each one to stop individually.

    or, if you're using as3, you can pause all timelines:

     

    stage.frameRate=0;
