          You didn't mention what version of Flash you're using. Have you checked
          out the UIScrollBar Component in the Components panel?

            you can create a dynamic text field and put all your text in it. say you name the text field "AboutMe_txt"...create two buttons, one for up, and one for down. attatch this code to the down button
            on(release)
            {
            AboutMe_txt.scroll = AboutMe_txt.scroll +5;
            }
            ------------------------------------
            and this to the up button

            on(release)
            {
            AboutMe_txt.scroll = AboutMe_txt.scroll -5;
            }


            ---------------------------------------------
            replace "AboutMe_txt" with whatever you name your instance

              I hope I'm not stealing the topic,
              But I am curious how you would do it if you had to put images, text, bullets, etc.

              Thanks

                You are, of course. ;)

                You would use HTML text in that text field, and use the <img> tag and
                other *very limited* HTML tags supported by Flash (search "supported HTML
                tags" in the Help to see exactly which ones).
