animating Flash text

animating Flash text

I am new to Flash and am confused by what the output is doing. I started by creating two separate letters (as separate symbols on separate layers) and animated them individually. Ultimately, the two letters came together, at which point I "grouped" them and animated them together. I also have another layer with more text moving around. Well, in the Flash window, the animation looks great, but when I export the movie, the individual letters remain static until the group begins to move at which point the animation works normally. I guess I'm a little confused about animating groups and symbols on different layers. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: animating Flash text

Yeah, you dont realy need to do all that for animating text.
Its realy quiet simple:

1) Write the text you want to appear in the first frame.
2) Make that a Key Frame.
3) Move the text how you want it in the second frame.
4) Once positioned how you want it, make that into a Key Frame.
5) Repeat proccess until animation is complete.
6) Rewind and Play animation to see if it is how you want it.
7) File>Publish>Flash and your done!
