I inherited a .fla file with a scrolling thumbnail image
movie clip that moves horizontally inside of a "scroll" behind a
mask, with the use of right and left buttons. < > The
thumbnail movie clip is much wider than the movie's dimensions. I
think it was made in Flash 5. I added about 30 new thumbnails to
the movie clip for my client, but now it won't expand anymore.
Before, all I had to do was put the thumbnail into the edge of the
clip and it would expand to include it. I can get the invisible
right and left "scroll" movie clips to scroll even beyond the movie
clip by adjusting the numbers in the ActionScript for those two
instances. I am not a "programmer type" so this probably is hard to
understand. If I try to change the width of the movie clip in the
properties box it comes up with an "invalid size and position"
error. Actually I think all it would do is stretch-distort the clip
anyway, which is not what I want. (if I put in a lesser number it
squishes the clip). I just want more space right and left.
