Hello, I am in school and I have an assignment to complete on flash, but when I try to make an object, an annoying little box appears around my object instead of having nothing around it, I passed this off as nothing and tried to use the selection tool, but then it didnt go all checkered like it should and instead that box came back. Ignored it again, I tried using the bone tool, but it only is working on one shape and it will not go to others to link them! This is what the box on the object looks like and it is really frustrating me. Please help!
You have the 'object drawing' tool selected. On your tool bar near the bottom there is a button that is just a circle (hover over it and it will say 'object drawing' (it is below your paintbucket colour palet and above the fill lock button. Providing yours looks like mine! just click on this and it will toggle object drawing on and off. you can break apart objects you have already drawn as objects by selecting the shape and pressing 'cmd' + 'B' (ctrl + b on a pc)
Oh my, I feel like an idiot! Thank you so much!
