    disable moving sprite on runtime

    Level 7

      is it possible to disable to move sprites with arrow keys when running a
      project in director-authoring? I use arrowkeys for navigaiton and any
      time I have selected a sprite I move the spriteposition. Can I disable
      this ?

          If you are running your movie in Director, sprites will only move when you press the arrow keys if:

          * the sprites are selected in the Score window
          * the Score window has focus

          If you click on the Stage before using the arrow keys, the Stage will take the focus from the Score window, and the arrow key input will be sent to the Stage instead.

          I assume that you have no Lingo code which alters the position of the sprites. If you do, then you will have to modify this code so that it is not called when you are in navigation mode.
