I have a graphic that has been imported to lib, it features spots each with a line of text, all converted to path beforehand. I drag drop to stage and resize smaller. I then have made movie clips of each spot and its associated text .
I now realise the text is too small on stage
I redraw the graphic at source with larger text and save it by the same name. Import it to lib choosing to replace item. The existing artwork on my stage vanishes and an edit undo wont bring it back. Even the stage seems to change size.
I try a simple experiment.
when I try that again the red circle goes purple. Twice though before it vanished, even if the red circle was made a graphic not an MC.
I am sure graphics have updated on stage when updated in libs, so why the vanishing act, which I was able to replicate initially with a simple test but now I cant, the graphic that matters though still refuses to update. If I paste the small text graphic into a new files lib and drag drop to stage, then paste into that lib the updated graphic, selecting update, it updates on stage.
Try saving your xfl to fla and making the changes you need, then changing it back. I think you get into a wonky situation with xfl where the directories created to represent your library assets get into a very strange state. And consider using version control.
Thanks for te reply.
The files were saved as fla, wasnt aware of xfl, its lower down on the drop down list
