Ok, first, I'm a beginner with Edge here, So I might be missing some obvious solution.
I want to create a button. I simply change an image to symbol (as I want to animate the buttons).
Once I do that and test it in preview, the symbol is gone. It never comes back. It's not put to
'hide'. It's in the timeline...
What am I missing?
can you post your code and some detail about your symbol and object here Plz ?
Thanks for wanting to help! I was going put up the project but first I wanted to trouble shooting one last time.
and... i got it to work!
I'll put the problem here in case someone runs into this issue as a beginner.
Steps to trouble shoot:
There was no code put into the button, Just a simple button.
I closed the project and made a new project just with an image and created the symbol. It worked. It was still there.
Then I went back to the project. Turn off every layer except the symbol that disappeared. When everything was turned off, I ran the preview again and the symbol was back! Then I turned each layer back on, one by one... doing previews each step. It kept showing until the last part. then it disappeared again. I then looked at the symbol closely to compare what was different from the other layers.
It was that every other layer used % instead of px at the position. The symbol used px as position and basicly jumped outside the stage.
Silly mistake but I am started to understand Edge Animate. It seems that if you use %, it's best to keep consistant with it and not mix % and px in position/sizes for the layers.
