    Can't swap symbol -- Flash exits w/out warnings

    barpos Level 1

      I have this background picture on its own layer that I'm trying to swap with another graphic symbol, but as I click on the new file, Flash exits with no return on its own.

       

      Any ideas why?

          Did you save before you tried the swap? If you place the image that you want to swap in on the stage, does it show up correctly and without error? Can you swap the image on the stage with any other image in the Library?

            No.

             

            >If you place the image that you  want to swap in on the stage, does it show up correctly and without  error?<

             

            Yes and w/out errors.

             

            >Can you swap the image on the stage with any other image in the  Library?<

             

            Nope.

             

            Anyhow, I ended up ...

             

            1. deleting the existing image symbol on the stage

             

            2. deleting the new image symbol in the library

             

            3. dragging the new [raw] image (jpg) onto the stage

             

            4. converting that stage image as a graphic symbol

             

            So, everything is fine now ...

             

            Regards,
