For some reason I cannot Create Motion Tweens. I have followed step by step instructions, and using exercise files from Lynda. The symbol from the Lynda files is a movie clip, and I resize it according to the demo - step by step. Selecting "Create Motion Tweens" from the menu does not actually create motion tweens. I have also tried from scratch in new files.
I am using CS4 on Windows 7, and I have created motion tweens before. I must have made some change somewhere else in Flash to cause this to stop working. Anyone have any ideas?
Are you using tutorials for an earlier version of Flash? If so, then you may want to use tutorials for the current version, or use Create Classic Tween instead of Create Motion tween.

Ah yes, I was watching a CS3 movie. Following your directions did the trick. Many thanks. Your aptly named mentee, hellplus.
I was following a CS3 movie on Lynda, so it turns out the only problem was with my powers of observation. I now realize the big difference between versions. Sadly, I am now tempted to get CS5 before I've even learned how to drive this car.
