I've been using Edge Animate for a short time, but still can't figure out how to set the "visible" area of a symbol. Here is what I am trying to do - Create a box on the stage that displays pictures and text that can be scrolled with a scroll bar.
I create elements on the stage and convert to a symbol. It seems that I should be able to now edit that symbol and reduce the "height" amount to cause scroll bars to appear. But, this has no effect on the symbol. I placed the symbol on the stage and set the display to "scroll" or "auto" and it does not care about the new height setting. What am I missing?
I think there is a bug in the latest version that prevents you to re-size after creation.
I am using the 2014.1.1 release. It must be a bug, because I sure can't figure it out. Adjusting the width or height after creation of the symbol does nothing. To work around the issue, I create a rectangle the size I want the scroll boxes visible area to be and convert that to a symbol. I then enter the symbol to delete the rectangle and replace it with the text and graphic elements I need.
