Hello Andy,When there is an error in the syntax, the timeline will play to the end. Try to comment out the line with the dot and see if it corrects the error.

Wow, thanks for the quick reply.
Unfortunately you are talking to a coding novice.
To comment out the line, would mean inserting // at the beginning of the line?
If I understanding comment out - I've tried using // at the start of the line.
The error message disappears. I close the code window, and the message reappears.
It's all very strange.
what is the code that has the error next to it?
Here is code (thanks for taking the time);
})(jQuery, AdobeEdge, "EDGE-81314524");
(jQuery, AdobeEdge, "EDGE-81314524");
The bold line has the error, and I'm guessing the second line shouldn't be there?
I've placed them in a DropBox - here's the link.
There is a folder and a Zip file of that folder, the contents are identical.
Thanks again to everyone for their help. I'm signing off now.
You are Awesome, I've had a quick look before I head out to do school run and small freelance job, and it's working great.
I'd love to know how you fixed it, but if the explanation is as long as 'War and Peace' then I wont trouble you any further.
As a print person coming across to the digital realm, community help like this is invaluable, and helped to alleviate pressure and panic.
As a freelancing mac operator/graphic designer who is also a stay-at-home dad this work is helping to make ends meet. (sob story over).
Thank you again.
Well, Andy, I am not very smart. I do things by trial and error when I am not sure of the technical reason for something to break. First I deleted the unused symbol in the library.
You probably know all all actions are written to the ...action.js file.
After deleting the unused symbol, I used notepad++ and I checked what elements were in a working action.js file and your action.js file. The advantage with notepad is that you can close the sections between brackets by clicking on a minus sign and see where there is a problem. (see minus and plus signs below). When I found the area with missing a bracket, I noticed that the binding for your missing element was still there but broken. I inserted the missing lines and then all the brackets closed properly. Then I deleted the area for the deleted element.
Hope this makes sense.
Thank You so much for that explanation for a fix. I had the same issue and by myself, I put the file into notepad++ but really didn't know what the heck I was looking for but your explanation on finding it worked perfect.
for anyone else, my problem was that edge made a comment and the symbol.bind somehow combine on one line early on :
//Edge binding endSymbol.bindElementAction........
so I just had to divide the again so they looked like:
//Edge binding end
So glad this tip helped you!
