There are any number of ways these text elements might have been designed into the file. So you pretty much have to search for things. If you do not see the text that you want to change when you open the fla file, then you may need to either make some layers visible that are not (eyeball icon next to layer name) or you may need to look into the actionscript code to see if the text is being dynamically written when the file opens. If you happened to receive any .as, .txt, or .xml files with the template, the text elements may also be defined in those files.
Just so you know, and this is just an observation, it appears from experience in these forums that template designers tend to make templates so that you are more likely to hire them to update things than to be able to solve it yourself.
I appreciate the quick reply. What are the actual steps in CS4 to find out about this? Truthfully I agree about hiring someone to do this. I've been spending the past couple of days working on this, but it's the $ factor. Thanks again.
Sorry, but detailing the various possible steps you might take is no simple set of instructions to prepare, especially if you aren't familiar with using Flash and where to look for things.
I got it. I just kept tinkering with Flash and tried a different approach. I opened the Sources folder, opened it with Flash and just finished editing the header.
