Could nt complete your request because source and destination files are the same

Feb 12, 2011 3:22 PM

Hi, thank you for reading.


I'm having this problem and it's driving me nuts.

I'm actually following a tutorial that you can check out here: ons


basically I'm trying to do a animated gif with canvas (I'm sorry if my english is not so great). when I try to drag the layers into the canvas (step 2 of the tutorial), I get the error: "could not complete your request because source and destination are the same".


can anybody help me? I have both CS3 and CS5 and they the error appears in both.


thank you in advanced

    I think they mean select the layers and frames and using the move tool, drag

    inside the document (click inside the document window and drag) to move the

    selected layers to the top half  (transparent area), not to drag the layers from

    the layers palette into the document, which would give that error.
