    Flash CS5.5, SWF file doesn't load TLF text.

      Hiya,

       

      I just downloaded the trial version of Flash 5.5. I was trying to a tutorial from  Adobe Classroom in a Book: Flash Professional CS5. I was trying to do lesson 7 which is all about TLF text.

       

      In the tutorial, you insert text that is TLF text. Most of the text doesn't do anything (it's Read-Only). But there is one area that is supposed to be a Mortgage Calcualtor and functions with ActionScript.

       

      I inserted the ActionScript that makes the Mortgage Calculator text do the proper math. My problem happens when I try to test the movie: the SWF file doesn't display any of the TLF text, and the Output panel gives me the following:

       

      ReferenceError: Error #1065: Variable TLFTextField is not defined.

       

      ReferenceError: Error #1065: Variable TCMText is not defined.

       

      I am confused because there aren't any variables with those names in any of the files of the tutorial, or in the ActionScript I entered. Where is Flash getting those variable names from? O_o

       

      I even turned the text back into Classic text to see if that helped, but I still get the error. Could this be a glitch with Flash 5.5?

       

      Thanks for your time.
