Since you can still drag it after it disappears, does it mean that you can still see the bounding box?
Is there a file that you can attach to this post that has the problem?
Yes I can see the box when the "transform-tool" (scaling, rotating) is active and I click on the MC.
Without the transform tool I can't see the bounding box, I just see the cursor changing when I'm above the symbol.
When I test the same FLA on the college PCs everything is fine.
I was not allowed by the upload form to upload the fla file Oo -> "The content type of this attachment is not allowed."

i follow the exact steps you take in the video and my movieclip does not disappear. i don't know why your movieclip does disappear but, that's not a application-wide issue on the pc. are you using a mac?
nope .. normal PC.
It could be some AS3 issue. The symbol is showing when I'm using a AS2 file.
Have a nice day guys
Yeah, I haven't seen that one before (thanks for uploading the video). Have you updated that machine to 10.0.2? (there are some changes made to the way AS3 documents are handled)
Regarding the upload, perhaps ZIP the file and that extension will work?
The FLA works on other machines like it should (symbol is showing) ... I tested it several times on my schools machines.
Its just my cr*py PC driving me insane again ^^
Maybe I'll wipe everything "flash-related" from the hard drive and reinstall flex and flash.
Is there an Adobe tool to remove everything, or clean the machine after an uninstallation ... I heard the standard uninstall process leaves some stuff untouched.
P.S. I'm trying the update now. Didn't know you can update Trail versions?!
It does sound like it may have something to do with the installation. You could just try add/remove programs and reinstall. There is a cleaner script that can help if you have problems cleaning off the machine, you can find it here: http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cs4clean.html Make sure that you follow the readme PDF that comes along with it.
After you reinstall, make sure to run the updater under Help > Updates as well.
