    Library: "Replace existing items" doesn't

    macandrew Level 1

      When copying movie clips from one Flash library to another, it is common to see the warning dialog "One or more library items already exist in the document" with three options:

      • Don't replace existing items
      • Replace existing items
      • Put duplicate items into a folder

       

      However, "Replace existing" doesn't replace existing - it puts the duplicates into new folders. With the result that I'm trying to avoid: multiple duplicates of shared resources (e.g. bitmaps, sounds etc.) which unnecessarily bloat the end product (SWF) with duplicate resources. To fix this means a long tedious process of swapping items to eliminate the duplicates.

      This is insane!
