    Shape hints shifted (and so broken) after pasting frames into new symbol


      Hi all,

      I am new to flash and working through the lynda.com flash professional CS5 tutorials to create an animation for a project.

      I'm using shape tweens with shape hints and now that I've got everything working beautifully I am attempting to create a symbol out of my animation.


      So following the instructions I...

      create a new graphic symbol,

      select the range of frames across the appropriate layers in my original animation on the stage,

      select the first frame in the symbol and

      right click and select the paste frames menu item


      all looks as it should in the resulting timeline but for the shape hints.

      When I turn on display of shape hints I can see that they are all shifted down and to the right and so no longer aligned with my original shapes.


      Surely I am doing something wrong but I don't know what. The shape hints took hours so I dread re-creating them.


      Any help would be most appreciated.
