    Simple text question

      Hello

      I am trying to develop a basic movie (MX 2004) which, when displayed in the browser, will show this:

      Reading your desktop........

      After about 4 seconds, this would be replaced by the following:

      Reading your desktop........Copied

      Immediately afterwards and directly underneath, this should appear:

      Reading your hard disk........

      As with the above, this would be replaced after a further 4 seconds by:

      Reading your hard disk........Copied

      So far, the visitor can see:

      Reading your desktop........Copied
      Reading your hard disk........Copied

      Immediately underneath this I would then like to show:

      Reading your personal emails........

      followed 4 seconds later by:

      Reading your personal emails........Copied

      At the end of this (which would last for about 12-15 seconds), the visitor would see:

      Reading your desktop........Copied
      Reading your hard disk........Copied
      Reading your personal emails........Copied

      I have worked on this (Flash MX 2004) by having static text show 'Reading your desktop........' on layer 1 in frame 1 and then eplacing it with 'Reading your desktop........Copied' on layer 1 in frame 48 (@12 fps I reckoned it would show after 4 seconds), but I can't seem to get it to work as I would like.

      I would be grateful for any advice.
