I'm using Flash CS5 proefessional and trying to do a demonstration. The demonstration includes a rope-like lanyard that is quite long and needs to bend at many many points. After successfully applying the bone tool to the object, I tried moving it with Free Transform. However, when I do so, the lanyard suddenly disappears, besides a couple tiny pieces. I didn't delete the previous layer, and I had unioned everything before breaking it apart again to apply the Bone tool. And I know all pieces were on the same layer since everything else was locked.
Is this just a glitch? Or is there something I'm missing? Thanks
Are you sure you are in the right layer?
Positive. In fact, I decided to transform it before applying the bone tool this time and....same result. After applying the bone tool, any time I try to manipulate it, the bulk of it vanishes, but the bone tool joints remain.
If it is a symbol, did you apply the bone tool on the symbol or the layer inside the symbol?
