One at a Time, Ladies

[ LiB ] 



As you may have figured out, if you want to animate a symbol, you have to put that symbol on its own layer by itself and then add your Motion Tween. That's all fine and good, but what if you decide to animate after you already put fifteen symbols on the same layer? Do you take a deep breath as you create a new layer for each and then copy and paste them one at a time? Let's not and say we did. The easier way is to select all the instances you want to animate at the same time, then go to Modify > Timeline > Distribute to Layers (CTRL-SHIFT-D; CMD-SHIFT-D on Mac). This will put each item you selected on its own layer all by itself so that you can animate each one individually. Flash will even name each layer to match the symbol name of each selected item. Ahhh, life is good.
