I know this is a simple question because I've done this
before but it's been awhile. I have created a button and the over
keyframe is a movie clip which is a simple text scale in and out. I
have tried to duplicate the button from the library but every
change I make also affects the text of the original button. Help
This is Vinay. I am new to this forum. But you can do it this
You can do one thing. First you copy the button in the
library & give it a different name. And then you go inside that
new button & go to that text layer. Refer those properties of
text & take a text box in a new layer & type the new text
you want & align it in the exact place. After that delete the
old layer. And come out.
You are done.
that's right - anytime you place a symbole on the stage it is
referred to as a 'instance' of that particular symbol - and you can
place as many 'instances' as you would like - however if you change
any of them it will effect the 'orginal' symbol and all 'instances'
of that symbol. kid is correct, you need to first duplicate the
symbol in the Library make a whole 'new' symbol and then you can
make the changes to it you would like.
