    a) how do you put text links into a flash animation? is that possible?

    b) what's a good book for a brand newbie (me) to read?

    That's it for now...but rest assured I will think of more newbie questions for you to answer

    make the text a button and right click on it, choose actions then insert this code:

    on release;
    geturl (whatever.html)

    Dont copy and paste this code cuz its not quite right, just look for each piece in the list and rebuild it.

    A good book is the flash 5 bible but it can be a bit overwhelming at first, you might try the Foundation Flash 5 series.

    or if you're just wanting to add a link to plain old text - simply highlight the text and in the characters panel (windows / panels / character) simply add the URL to the "URL" box.

    As for the books: flashkit usually feature a different book on the index page - perhaps try checking those out. (top left corner under the nav)

    What I want is drop down menus. like..you click and the scroller moves over and a menu drops down from the top. probably painfully obvious...but I'm stumped.

    Erm, if u wanna do a dropdown menu off those buttons, u'll need to insert a new movie clip, create the dropdown menus for each menu in a separate movie clip (confusing?) and then insert them into the main animation, probably scene1.
