I'm using Flash CS4. Not sure how this happened, if it's a glitch or what, but somehow a movie clip within a site I was building has gotten stuck in the "outlines" preview mode. If I return to the root of the site, everything shows in "full" mode (just as flash is set to full in the view > preview mode options.) But when I double click to open one of the main movie clips, it's all outlines-- and the preview mode continues to show that "full" is selected.
Is this a glitch? Or is there some keystroke or option somewhere that I'm missing to get this individual movie clip back into full preview mode?
just above that movieclip's timeline you'll see an eye, lock and an outline of a square. click the square. retest.
You're a genius, doc. That did the trick-- no idea how I got in that situation in the first place, but that worked. Shows how long it's been since I worked in flash :s
i've click that accidently when trying to lock or unlock all the layers. and i've occassionally intentionally clicked it but i have to say, there aren't may times i've found that useful.
