I just started messing with flash for the first time last night trying to follow a tutorial for fading text for a movie i'm trying to make.. one of the requirements was to open the effects panel... using windows/panels. Well, after searching through everything I couldnt find it. I noticed that for text properties theres an effect dropdown menu option... but that was grayed out, even after converting it to a graphic symbol and creating a tween. Did I miss something? TIA
