I am new here and I am trying to get my imported library images to appear on the stage. I am using the CS4 version and when I click on the library item and drag it to the stage, there is nothing there. It is just a blank canvas and it's like the image(s) are hidden behind the stage or something. When I do a Publish Preview, I can see the .swf file with all the images, but in the .fla, there is nothing showing but the text files, and then that is even hidden in a newly created file. I am not sure if I accidently turned something on/off that is preventing my images from not showing on the stage or what. I really need to find a solution to this problem because I need to create a Flash file for a project I am working on in one of my classes. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I have done Google searches and Forum searches to no avail unless I'm not using the right keywords in my search. I have downloaded every available update that is out there for Adobe and it didn't fix my issue. Thanks in advance.
create a new layer and drag an object to the stage while that layer/first keyframe is selected. any problem?
if yes, take a screen shot that shows your stage and the timeline with the selected layer/frame
No, this didn't work. When I went and viewed the same files on another computer, the .fla shows everything. I just may have to work on that computer for now until I can figure out why my images aren't showing up on this one. I'll compare the settings on both and and may just have to uninstall and reinstall the software to get it to work. Thanks!
