i think the problem it's in the targetPath " mainClip.newspaper_mc.newinstructions.text = lu.welcome[langIdx];".
chech if you have mistype the instance names of your movieClip and rewrite it or in the Actions panel select the path " mainClip.newspaper_mc.newinstructions" and click the button "Insert Target Path" this will open a popup with a tree of your MC's on the stage, so you can browse and find the textfield. i hope i helped you if not let me know!
I used the target path, and tried it with the this. and the _root but still no joy.
Any other suggestions?
does newinstructions exist on the first frame of newspaper_mc?
No it exists several frames in.
that's a problem, then. you're trying to assign the text property for a textfield that doesn't exist, yet.
to remedy, put your textfield on the first frame (disable its _visible property if you don't want it to be visible) or move that code to a frame that executes when the textfield exists.
