    hyperlinking static text in CS5/AS3?

    r_tist Level 1

      Have a text box and would like to hyperlink some of the words in the text (this is a basic, static, text box). How in Flash CS5 / AS3? Do I actually need to set up some sort of event listener for something as basic as this? And if it's not one of the 3 symbol options, then how?

       

      It's not as simple as selecting and going to the properties to find the field anymore...

       

      Thanks!

          oops. looks like it is! Now if I have a series of linking text (acting like buttons) in menu fashion, should I convert each one to a button in order to get the text to change color on mouseOver? Do I need to flatten the font in order to do this? The links will need to jump to an internal chapter within the SWF.

           

          Any advice is appreciated! Thanks.
