Ive created a box, turned it into a symbol called box,
Inside box i have a left to right animation with auto play turned off.
I then went back to the main stage, clicked the box, added action, on click to play, yet it does nothing.
How do i Play the symbols timeline?
On click handler for the symbol use
replace the italics with the literal name of the symbol as it appears in the Elements panel.
Some API details found here (http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/edgeanimate/api/current/index.html) in the Work With Symbols section.
