I am trying to create an Flash application where areas expand
when the user pushes a button which pushes the rest of the GUI down
as it expands. To accomplish this, I have every line of the GUI (it
is a chart-looking interface) nested in the symbol above it,
creating nested movieclip, inside of nested movieclip, etc. This
way when the user clicks to expand the section to view more
details, it will move down all the symbols. Eventually this causes
my Mac g5 to hang indefinitely when trying to put the last groups
Do you think it is the many nested symbols that are causing
this? They go as far as 9 deep sometimes. My 400KB fla file will
end up taking 1 GB of memory and spiking the CPU at 100%, and, of
course, is not responding. Thank you.
Make an official bug report on this. I and a few others have
experienced the identical problem, using PCs, but are unable to
supply sample files for Adobe to test due to confidentiality
restrictions. If you can supply Adobe with your sample file, maybe
they can figure out the problem and fix it.
By the way, the problem never occurred for me in previous
versions of Flash.
