All you need to do is open the component inspector and make the necessary changes.
The componenet inspector seems only to change the size (H, W) of the box around the radio button. I would like to change the size of the clickable area, the little white circle, and the inspector has no effect on that.
Did you try dragging the radio button component to the stage, selecting it then converting it to a button symbol, then scaling that symbol using the transform window?
Flash Help says that the radiobutton component is a compiled clip; a movie clip. By converting it to a button symbol I lose all my radiobutton abilites. I want a custom look for my radiobuttons and there seem to be two ways to get it. The first is to change the skin and that is what I have tried to do but have not been successful. The second way is to create my own look with graphics and use ActionScript to turn those graphics into radiobuttons and radiobutton groups. SInce I have 600 radiobutton instances in my survey, I thought AS code might make the swf file too big, plus I don't yet know how to do that anyway. Thanks for trying to help. I'll keep plugging away, I have a workaround that provides a larger clickable area at least.
I wanted to change the size of the radio button component circle to make it easier to select. To change the size of the clickable circle you import the radio button component assets into your library. Flash Help provides a good explanation of this. In my Flash the file is stored in:
Macromedia>Flash>EN>Component FLA>HaloTheme.FLA>Flash UI COmponents>themes>MMDefault>RB Assets
You drag RB Assets out of the external library panel and into your FLA file's library. Now you can work on them.
The key asset in the Elements folder and is called Radio Shape 1. When you double click this you can scale it and that changes the visual and clickable size of the RB circle. A problem is that the change is not visible in the FLA, you have to run the SWF to see it.
