    Searching for libary member usage

    Level 7
      Hello,

      I'm a pretty inexperienced with Flash, but am a Director expert. In
      Director there is a way to find out if a cast member is used in the score.
      In Flash, is there something similar? I mean is there a way to find out if a
      library member is used in a timeline? I'm trying to clear out unused
      resources and don't want to delete something that is being used.

      Thanks,

      Brian

          Flash can do itself but only if you are using symbols on stage.

          To find unused library items:
          Do one of the following:
          Select Unused Items from the Library options menu.
          Sort library items by the Use Count column.

          NOTE: It is not necessary to delete unused library items to reduce a Flash document's file size because unused library items are not included in the SWF file. However, items linked for export are included in the SWF file.
