It would be helpful if you post your file, but here's one way to approach this. If you only have 2 variables (size and options), you can create symbols for all sizes, with options placed at labels inside those "size" symbols. You'd want to rename your symbols so the symbol names and labels match up with the "size_selected" and "option_selected" variables.
// code on Stage.compositionReady:
// function called on final option click
sym.showAnimation = function()
// set symbol vars based on "sym.size_selected" and "sym.option_selected" vars
var mySymbolSize = "mySymbolSize"+sym.size_selected;
var mySymbolOption = "mySymbolSize"+sym.option_selected;
// show corresponding size symbol
// play corresponding option frame label
var mySymbolObject = sym.getSymbol("mySymbolSize");
// code on size 1 button click (set "sym.size_selected" var):
sym.getComposition().getStage().size_selected = 1;
// code on option 3 button click (set "sym.size_selected" var)
// (this is assuming the animation shows after the option is selected):
sym.getComposition().getStage().option_selected = 3;
Do you have a suggestion regarding posting the file so you can privately review the files.
Hi T, review my post first, and let me know if you have any questions about the setup that I suggested.
Thanks for the reply but the this seems a little daunting to me right now.
I was able to build this in Flash easily a few years ago but now we need to have the graphics play on the iPads our sales team use.
Each final graphic shows some technical data along a corresponding sound beam shape.
There are a total of 27 different final graphics that I divided between the 3 symbols, 9 each.
The files was working correctly at first but started the strange behaviour as I added more labels and keyframes to each symbol.
Should I post to my Dropbox account and send you a link?

Hey TR3, how did you setup things in the Flash version? Structurally, you should be able to set it up the same way in Edge. There will be differences in how you call vars and symbols, but you can definitely structure it the same way.
You can PM me a zip of your files in the meantime.
PM , got it. File on the way.
