    how do I turn an entire Edge Animate project into a symbol

    paper1246 Level 1

      I have created an Edge Animate project that features a short animated tutorial for our website.  Now I realize that I would like to incorporate that project inside a larger project.  Is there any way to convert the entire tutorial into a symbol that can be added to the larger project?

       

      Thanks

          Hi, Paul-

           

          You'll need to do a little bit of wrangling to make this happen, but the easiest thing to do is:

          • Select everything in your elements panel and convert to symbol
          • Transfer all of your triggers by highlighting them all in your main timeline and cutting (Ctrl/Cmd-X), then:
            • Open your symbol
            • Move the playhead to the time location of your first trigger
            • Paste (Ctrl/Cmd-V)
          • Transfer all of your timeline-based and stage-based code manually

           

          Hopefully that helps - it's a little bit of a pain if you have a lot of code involved, but if you only have timeline-based things, most can be cut and pasted over.
