Bad news I'm afraid. You can't really do that with static textfields.
you can't use as to access static text with as2.
you can with as3 but what you can do with static text seems very limited.
Thanks all. I'll have to get clicking.
I don't know if you're using flash 8... but if you want to get to them easily, try using the Movie Explorer (ALT-F3 in windows).
Deselect everything except text.
You can see (if you expand the branches ) content of static text as well as textfields
Then if you double click the symbol icon (the owner of the text) it'll take you straight to editing mode for the 'owner' of that static text. If you go through the list in the movie explorer doing this it might be easier to keep track of what you've done. Hope that makes sense.
GWD - thanks for that. I don't use Movie explorer much. I was able to get to the text and get it into edit mode but I was really looking for a way to make the changes in AS to avoid hunting down and clicking on stuff.
Your input did lead me to an interesting FL8 feature.
