right click the location on the timeline where you want to add a frame. if you don't have a right mouse button you can click insert/timeline/
I really appreciate the quick response. So, I went to Insert/timeline/
then tried putting in "Frame" then tried putting in "Keyframe" then
tried putting in "blank keyframe" and each time a new LOAD CODE 393
popped up at the bottom of the Action-Frame highlighted in blue. So,
then I went back to LOAD CODE 380 and copied the text using "Edit/
copy". I then went back to the timeline and brought the red
rectangular box to 393 as which time it showed up again at the bottom
of the Action-Frame highlighted in blue. I can't for the life of me
get the text from LOAD CODE 380 inserted into the large white, blank
text box on the Action-Frame screen. HELP!
i have no idea what you're describing when you mention LOAD CODE NNN. i've not seen that before.
can you take a screenshot that shows what you're trying to describe?
Sorry not to be more clear. It is a name assigned to one of the
frames by the person who originally designed the website and is shown
in the list of about 150 action frames that were created in this
particular fla document. This "list" comes up in the left hand column
of the Action-Frame box. When I click on Load Code 380 which is half
way down the column of frames, the following text comes up on the
large screen to the right of the column of 130 frames.
This text is what I am trying to transfer to copy then paste into a
new frame after which time I want to slightly edit the text. I am not
a programer so I apologize if I am not using all of the correct
Thank you again, Jon
if you click a keyframe and in the properties panel you see label name "LOAD whatever" the string in quotes is a frame label. frame labels can be used in navigation in a swf, via:
which causes the playhead to move from the frame that contains that code to the frame labeled "LOAD 309".
the text you see in your actions panel is called actionscript. you can copy and paste that text just like you can copy and paste any text. the actions panel is like a text editor but it can do much more with code highlighting and formatting.
I will try your suggestions & if I am still baffled I suspect that
once I show your comments to my programmer who uses a PC we can get
this worked out. THANK YOU! More than generous with your time &
p.s. in the future, please mark helpful/correct responses, if there are any.
