    How to make Flash forget instance properties...

    Projectpixel


      Randomly when I apply a property to an instance on frame 1, that property will carry over to that instance on frame 2. Even if I modify the property on frame 2, it gets overridden by frame 1.

      For example. I have a movieclip that lies behind text buttons, and highlights on rollover or keyboard interaction. On frame one, that clip its at the top of the page, on frame two, the middle. When I navigate directly from frame one to two, the clip is at the top as opposed to the middle.

      My only solution is to navigate to a blank keyframe first, where there are no instances of the clip. This is messy. There has to be a better way to make Flash forget the instance properties.

      Thanks in advance.
