Hey Guys -

I bought a photo gallery here a few months ago and I wanted to place another image which is basically an arrow that points to the galleries nav menu.

There are already two buttons on the Gallery which each have pngs and are symbols in the library.

I started out by simply coping the symbol that is already inside the gallery movie clip and pasting it right on top of itself, when I run the preview sure enough the symbols (which I copied and pasted on each other) are in different places! ugh!

ps the symbol is own it’s own layer in the mc.

A finger in the right direction is all I need!

Thanks in advance!

although i don’t understand what you are trying to do I can safely assume that copying and pasting a symbol will not help you a lot. Normally a symbol is referenced and used by the code that “moves” the application using an instance name (if is placed on the stage). So you need an instance name for your symbol, then using actionscript, make it do something, for example, position it were you need it to be. Just look at the source code and study how the author controls the elements inside the photo gallery.

Thanks for the replies, I did not try to contact the author yet because I wanted to try and work it out myself before I bother someone else (besides you guys of course :)
