Using CS4. I'm making a website with a Flash movie as the main page. I've created 7 buttons, with the usual "Contacts", Guestbook, Home, Photos, etc. All the buttons work fine in the development part but when I do a "test movie" or publish it, only 2 buttons have the link "finger" when I roll the mouse over and do what they're supposed to do. The others have a text bar during role over. If I double click, the text of the button disappears. I'm using only text with no animation as the button. I created the buttons using the text tool and the convert to button symbol. I've tried making buttons by using the Add Symbol menu but nothing seems to work. I've duplicated the other buttons to look exactly like the two that work, but nothing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
In the properties panel for the textfields, you should be able to make them non-selectable. If they are selectable, they will display the text bar.
That was it! I couldn't change the existing text, the selectable icon wouldn't release, or whatever you call it. I created a new button, where I could unselect the icon and did a swap symbol. Worked like a charm. Thanks alot!
