I've been asked to update a director file (I have the .dir
file), by my boss as the person who was looking after it previously
has left. However, I can't quite figure out how to replace an image
(say a button) with an updated image while still keeping all the
scripts and behaviours attached to it. I don't know lingo at all
and the scripts look pretty long so recreating it would take a long
time, surely there must be an easier way to replace images? I'm
using MX as well.
Open the file in Director and look in the Cast window. Click
the old graphic that you are removing so it is highlighted.
on the keyboard and it will disappear. Immediately after
click in that same cast slot and choose Import. Select the
that you will be putting into the place of the old one. It
will come in
and beset up exactly as the old one was, with the same score
and scripts. It would be best if your graphics are EXACTLY
size as the original ones or they may get squashed/stretched
upon how the original person set up the file.
