I´m going crazy over here. I do the same thing over and over and the result seems to be whatever Flash feels like for the moment.
I´m creating a square, making it into a movie clip. Going into the movie clip and click the graphics, then I go to color > bitmap fill and check my imported pattern.
Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a stretch/tile option somewhere? I wan't the bitmap pattern to tile within my area but instead it's just stretching out.
If the shape you are applying the bitmap fill to has been modified from what it originally was dimensionally, the fill that you apply will also be stretched or shrunk accordingly, even if you apply it after the fact of changing the shape's dimensions.
You can see this if you draw a shape wit a solid color, then stretch it, then choose to bitmap fill it
You might have some luck if you have the fill selected to start with and then draw the shape.
Aha! Then I guess I changed the graphic to the correct size before making it into a movie clip when I got it right. And changed the graphic in the movie clip when I got it wrong.
