    What the "F" is going on

    I am really frustrated with Flash right now. All I have to do is mask one layer and it doesn't work.

    I have two different layers that have a graphic that flies in from the left side of the stage. When I put a mask over the first one it works perfect. When I put a mask over the second one it looks like it works perfect but when I test it, it doesn't. It never shows up.

    Do you have any ideas???

    Thanks for any help!
    Thanks for the wisdom oh great one!

    I'll try to explan


    Here are the layers in order:

    Mask 1
    Moving Words Layer 1
    Mask 2
    Moving Words Layer 2

    "Moving Words Layer 1" is the one that doesn't work. Both layers have one symbol on them that are static text in a grafic symbol. This is what boggles my mind the most. Everything is exactly the same on the two "Word" layers.

    On the Mask layers I have a box covering the area the words move across.

    Is there any problem with having too many masks? I probably have about 6 or 7 throughout my whole scene.

    Any more info needed let me know.
    Thanks!!!!

    You know what, I forgot I went live on this project last week so you can visit

    http://www.wdrmn.com

    Go to the version 1.1

    Watch when the words fly in at the top of the screen. I don't want them to show up off the stage. They shouldn't show up there to start out with but that is a whole other problem.

    I also attached an FLA that is exactly like the one in my original FLA but this one works and the original doesn't.

    I don't get it!
    Thanks!!
