    Scroll handle on curved path

    Tony Heagren Level 1
      Hi all,

      does anyone know if it is possible to make the handle of a scroll
      follow a curved path ?
      (I've drawn a quick sketch to save hours of typing...)

      all and any help much appreciated.
      Best wishes
      Tony

          you can check "drag along a path" for various guided drags. or for a simple path like an ellipse, you can use actionscript to fake the drag and have the movieclip follow the arc of the ellipse.

            kglad is right as usual, but before you go into your math adventure (even if it is not so challenging) I'd advise you to draw your text into your oval, and simulate scrolling in Photoshop or something alike. I'm fairly sure that - cute as it might look - reading will be very hard and uncle Jacob will place a bounty on your head for that!
