    simpleButton has become active in symbol editor and won't let me select or delete it

    Level 1

      Hello all,


      After weeks of editing symbols without any trouble, I'm suddenly having trouble with a movie clip in the symbol editor of Flash CS4: the simpleButton in there that I want to delete has somehow become active inside the editor--meaning it's roll over state is active, lighting up when I mouse over it--and it only animates  and shows me its mouse down animation when I mouse over and click on it, instead of letting me select the button so I can just delete it.

      Note that only this one button type is now active in all versions of it in symbol editor, the other simpleButtons are still normal and editable in the symbol editor.


      Does anyone know why Flash is doing this?  Is there a way to deactivate active buttons in symbol editing mode so I can edit them?
