It can be done.
Simple create an element with the Text Tool; put any thing in the text area (example i often just type 'placeholder').
It will be oveerwritten later with the below code, using the html() method.
Depending on how you trigger/ play / or show that text element, then do something like this.
// Copy Below //////
sym.$("Text1").html ("I am working on my first Animate project. \
The project has several screens with \
short paragraphs of text on each screen. <a href = 'http://www.somewebsite.com/' target='_blank'>some link</a> \
The project has several screens with short paragraphs \
of text on each screen. \
If it can't be done, I can set up transparent boxes with the links \
to sit on top of the text - not the best way to \
do this but it seems to work <a href = 'http://www.somewebsite.com/' target='_blank'>another link</a> ");
// End Copy /////////
Note the multiple link references above. The same as stndard html linking procedures.
The trailing \ is to allow for carriage return within the code window and is for display only. They will not appear in the result.
Thank you so much! It worked PERFECTLY!! I really appreciate your help.
