    Unique Duplication of Symbols

    beesbane
      I have created a relatively simple movie clip that I wish to duplicate and reuse, but uniquely. In this particular instance it is a pop-up over a catalog. So there are a few different items that I want to use this same symbol with. Renaming has no effect on this, as no matter how many different names it has it still edits all of them.

      Please help.

          If you wish to duplicate it, then that's what you need to do in the library panel. Click on the symbol you want to duplicate, right-click it, choose duplicate. You may now edit one without affecting the other (unless the symbol contains another symbol element in which both copies share). The only way you can customize a single movie clip and not affect other instances of it is through action script.
