    Problem deleting nested symbols

    dreister1337

      Hi there,

       

      My company has been developing interactive content using Edge Animate since version 2. After upgrading to 5.0, many of our compositions stopped working properly, with the console returning this error:

       

      Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'id' of null

       

      After some investigation, I was able to isolate the problem: it seems that when a child symbol is created within another child symbol, the script stops being able to differentiate between the parent symbol's children and grandchildren. So, when you delete the nested symbol, then go to delete the parent symbol, this error occurs and the whole composition breaks.

       

      Here's a test file demonstrating the problem: Dropbox - test2.zip

       

      Rolling back to 4.0 for now, as we need to begin content production ASAP. Please let me know if this is a bug that will be resolved, or if there's a new way of implementing this kind of functionality.

       

      Cheers
