I have created this madly complex menu rollout with buttons, tweens lables with dynamic text- you name it..... now I want to duplicte this symbol and change its colour to make a new menu tab, but when I try to do this (by going into it and duplicating each nested part- I am getting a linkage error-
**Warning** The linkage identifier 'Symbol1' was already assigned to the symbol 'Symbol 2', and cannot be assigned to the symbol 'Symbol 1', since linkage identifiers must be unique.
SO where do I find this and how do I fix it please?!
thanks for your help,
The linkage identifiers are found in the Properties/Linkage panels of the objects in the library. If you right click one of the library symbols in question you should see an option for Linkage in the offerings that appear. This Linkage panel is a subpanel of the Properrties panel for that library object (which you can open similarly by selecting Properties instead of Linkage.
Linkage is also visible in the library panel. Widen it and you should see linkages (flash's terminology for giving an actionscript accessible 'name' to a library object). You can't have 2 linkages with the same name or Flash won't know which library item you mean.
