Hi. I have a question and I can't seem to find an answer. When I import multiple png files into the library, why doesn't it also create them into symbols? Is there a preference option I can change? Also I can not find anyway to convert them to symbols after the pngs are in the library. I have tried going to "modify" and "convert to symbol" but it is greyed out and I can not select it. I need both the pngs and the symbols in the Library.Please help.
There's a few ways to do it but no option I know of to do it automagically.
The manual way with no JSFL programming knowledge can be found in the answer to this question:
Essentially import PNGs into separate layers in Photoshop (if you have it) and import that PSD into Flash which can auto-convert each layer into a separate symbol.
Otherwise you can use a JSFL extension, such as this (I haven't tried it):
