In my flash document I have different muscles of the body that are each symbols(some muscles are in groups as one symbol). I am making a drag and drop flash game where you can drag and drop the muscles onto their targets on the body. The problem is, is that the muscles used for the targets need to be black, but when I changed the color of the targets, it changed the color of the regular muscles also. I do know that both the target and the actual muscles are both created from the same instance. However, I do not know if that is what is causing this to happen or if it is something else.
Please help me!
If you are doing the placement of the targets manually, you should be able to select them on stage and change their brightness (or their tint) in the properties panel until they turn back.
If you are editing them to turn them black you are editing the master copies of them.
